#LahadDatu: All schools in Ops Daulat zone now reopened

All schools in the Ops Daulat zone are back in session with the reopening of SK Tanjung Labian and SK Lok Buani.

Schools in the vicinity of Felda Sahabat here were disrupted following the intrusion by Sulu gunmen more than a month ago.

SK Tanjung Labian headmistress Sakka Labacho said that only 151 pupils out of the total of 253 were present because many were still at relief centres.

Students will be allowed to wear everyday clothes to school for now, and Labacho said that she was arranging for uniforms and stationery for them.

"Parents need not fear about sending their children to school because the schools are being provided tight security," she told reporters.

A check by Bernama found six members of the armed forces maintaining security at the school's main gate.

Meanwhile, SK Lok Buani headmistress Saabi Hasim, 45, said 97 out of 158 pupils were present in school uniform.

Most were from Kampung Sungai Nyamuk and Kampung Sungai Bilis, she said.

Saabi, who had been at the school for six years, was grateful that the school building was still in good condition after being abandoned for more than a month.

Both schools plan to hold replacement classes every Saturday to ensure that pupils do not miss their studies, especially those in year six who will be sitting for their Ujian Pencapaian Sekolah Rendah (UPSR) in September.
