KOTA KINABALU: The date for the Raffle Draw for the SJK (C) Chung Hwa Likas Building fund raising has been postponed from Friday (March 31) to May 31, 2017.
Datuk Ir. Chin Shu Ying, chairman of the School Board of Management in a statement did not give any explanation for the two-month extension, except offer his apologies to those who have already bought the tickets for the inconvenience caused.
It is understood that sales of the tickets, priced at RM10 each, were not encouraging, hence the new date for the draw.
Chin said the raffle draw was part of the efforts by the School Management Board to raise funds for the construction of a seven-storey multipurpose hall for the school that will consist of nine class rooms and one meeting room.
The construction of the building is estimated to cost RM10 million.
“This new building is also to replace the existing old PIBG building that has become too costly to maintain and had incurred financial burden to the school every year,” he added.
Chin noted that once completed, the new building will also allow the morning session students to conduct their co-curricular activities and assembly in a safer and more comfortable environment.
The top prize in the draw is a four-wheel drive vehicle.
