PETALING JAYA - Nearly 20 pupils of SJK (Tamil) Seaport in Kelana Jaya here ended up spending the day outside their school after it relocated to Kampung Lindungan despite objections by some of the parents.
While the entrance to the old building was locked, the pupils in their school uniforms and accompanied by their parents, played and ate in an empty area nearby. There was no teacher in sight.
Parent-Teacher Association chairman Kumar Vanathan said the Education Ministry officials had promised to get feedback from parents, who are mainly from Kelana Jaya and Lembah Sumbang, before deciding on the relocation.
"But we could not contact the officials two weeks after the meeting," he said yesterday, adding that they were notified by the headmaster on Dec 16 that the relocation had been confirmed.
