If all goes well, the proposed SJK (C) Kheng Chee will be ready for the 2013 intake. Puchong MCA chairman Datuk Wong Hock Aun said the school’s construction committee was preparing the documents for the Chinese primary school, which would be relocated from Ladang Bukit Dinding in Karak to Pusat Bandar Puchong.
A 2.4ha site has been identified in Persiaran Indera, Pusat Bandar Puchong, for the school project.
“We are looking at submitting the architectural drawings to the Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) in late October and hopefully receive the approval by late November.
“We will start the construction work in December,” Wong said.
He added that a consultant team, comprising a soil investigator, mechanical and electrical engineers, a quantity surveyor, civil and structural engineers, a land surveyor and town planner, was formed a week after Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong confirmed the relocation.
The committee made the decision to build the 36-classroom school in two phases so that the school could be opened in 2013.
The first phase, to be completed in August or September next year, would consist of 22 classrooms, administration office, headmaster’s office and canteen.
“We can have 18 Year One, Two, Three and Four classes for 900 students,” Wong said.
Every year, many Year One students are turned away and sent to schools in Serdang, Petaling Jaya and Old Klang Road because there are insufficient classes in the four Chinese primary schools in Puchong.
Wong said the new school would definitely help to improve the situation.
He encouraged qualified contractors interested in the project to register with the architect, Siew Chee Kong, who can be contacted at 012-691 4219.
