Sarawak projects worth RM1.18bil announced 

22, June 2011

SIXTY-TWO projects worth RM1.18bil have been announced for Sarawak as at April 30, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said 52 projects would be implemented this year to be followed by the rest next year.

“These have already been planned much earlier,” he said in a written reply to Teresa Kok (DAP-Seputeh) who asked for a list of projects announced two months before and during the Sarawak state polls in April.

Najib said the Rural and Regional Development Ministry had the biggest allocation of RM535mil for projects in Sarawak followed by the Health Ministry and the Works Ministry.

He said the projects involved water supply, road construction and upgrading, the building of jetties, bridges and medical facilities. — Bernama

Orang asli to be in history book

21, June 2011

THE history of the Orang Asli will be included in the History syllabus of the Secondary School Standard Curriculum to be implemented from 2014, starting with Form One.

Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the History syllabus, now being revised, was based on the syllabus under the Secondary School Integrated Curriculum 1989, implemented in 2003.

“So, matters related to the Orang Asli were little touched on,” he said in his written reply to Teresa Kok (DAP-Seputeh).

Orang Asli history to be included in secondary school syllabus

20, June 2011

KUALA LUMPUR: The history of the Orang Asli will be included in the History syllabus of the Secondary School Standard Curriculum (KSSM) to be implemented from 2014, starting with Form One.

Education Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin said the History syllabus now being revised was based on the syllabus under the Secondary School Integrated Curriculum (KBSM) 1989 which was implemented in 2003.

He said it was, however, not a total revamp of the KBSM.

“So, matters related to the Orang Asli were little touched on in the KBSM and in the History syllabus under revision,” he said in his written reply to Teresa Kok in the Dewan Rakyat Monday.

Kok had asked why the Orang Asli were not mentioned at all in the Form Four History textbook. – Bernama
