Six men were sent to get the work done. Still standing steadfastly like it used to since 1959, the grand old primary school has to go. Electricity supply was cut off last week, followed by a notification to the Lembaga Air Perak. Contractors had to make sure the wiring, fans and lights were taken down before the actual works begins.
Yesterday, notices were sent to parents of primary school pupils informing them that the entire primary school premises had to be cordoned off.
Entrances are currently under heavy chains and locks. Secondary school students watched the demolition works carried out from afar with sadness and a heavy heart.
They remembered the years they spent in the classrooms and playing under the big, shady trees. Here, we post pictures of the myriad of areas many would relate to, in their own way.

Slated to be used temporarily for only five years when it was built in 1959, plans to build a permanent building had not materialized. The premises had undergone decades of maintenance works and repairs. We acknowledge the old boys, parents, teachers, the Board of Governors and former headmasters for their years of toil and labour.
