The Government has started disbursing the RM100mill allocations announced in the 2012 Budget to 428 missionary schools throughout the country.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon said for a start, 75 schools from the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Pahang, Selangor and Negri Sembilan received their allocation Thursday.

Dr Koh said before the distribution was made, the matter was discussed with each school to ensure that the amount given was fair and reasonable.

“So on average, each school receives between RM40,000 and RM50,000, while some schools might get more as they are being repaired or expanded,” he said.
