Over 8,000 pupils in Sabah will benefit from free breakfast programme


Over 8,000 pupils from 15 primary schools in Sabah will participate in the free breakfast programme (PSP) beginning Jan 20, said Sabah education director Mistirine Radin.

When contacted today, she said the schools from 15 districts in Sabah were selected based on their high percentage of students from families in the B40 (low-income) group.

The schools are Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Penangah (Telupid), SK St James (Kudat), SK Tandek (Kota Marudu), SK Nambayan (Tambunan), SK Kabogan (Semporna), SK Bukit Garam (Kinabatangan), SK Pinggan-Pinggan (Pitas), SK Binsulok (Beaufort), SK Kuala Tomani (Tenom), SK Kebagu (Kota Kinabalu), SK Kulambai (Kota Belud), SK Pekan Nabawan (Pensiangan), SK Kundasang (Ranau), SK Sungai Anib 1 (Sandakan) and SK Umas-Umas (Tawau).

On Friday, the Education Ministry announced that the first phase of the programme will be implemented on Jan 20 in 100 primary schools across the country.

This phase will benefit 37,000 students and 1,600 teachers daily at an estimated cost of RM22 million.

Its implementation will be based on a Grab 'n' Go concept menu comprising nutritious drinks and simple food such as bread, biscuits, cereal snacks, local cakes, sandwiches, fruits and boiled eggs.
