Students of Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Dato' Bijaya Setia have to endure the heat and rain when they arrive and leave the school while waiting for school buses and their parents to pick them up. Rotary Club of Bandar Sungai Petani team up with the Parent-Teacher Association of the school (PIBG) to construct a covered walkway for the students. Having drawn up the plans and obtained the necessary approvals from the various authorities, the Principal Puan Chua Jock Cheng, PIBG President Sanmugam Ramaiah and Committee Members attended Rotary Club of Bandar Sungai Petani meeting on 10 May 2023 to ink a Memorandum of Understanding on the construction and management of the walkway.
There will be advertisement spaces available for businesses to advertise on the structure which is along a major trunk road leading from Sungai Petani to Kuala Ketil. Details of this will be out soon. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
