Government starts disbursing RM100mil to missionary schools
PUTRAJAYA: The Government has started disbursing the RM100mill allocations announced in the 2012 Budget to 428 missionary schools throughout the country.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said for a start, 75 schools from the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Pahang, Selangor and Negri Sembilan received their allocation Thursday.
"The amount of allocation differs from one school to another as it depends on their requirement," he told reporters after presenting the allocation here.
Dr Koh said before the distribution was made, the matter was discussed with each school to ensure that the amount given was fair and reasonable.
"So on average, each school receives between RM40,000 and RM50,000, while some schools might get more as they are being repaired or expanded," he said. - Bernama
