SC donates 285 used computers to schools

Kuala Lumpur, 1 December 1998

These pupils of Sekolah Kebangsaan Bandar Baru Bangi have a good reason to give their thumbs-up, as their school will be able to set up a Computer Club next year. The school was selected by the Ministry of Education to receive 25 used computers out of the 285 donated by the Securities Commission (SC) for distribution to schools through the ministry.

SC Policy and Development Director Dr Nik Ramlah Nik Mahmood who handed over the computers to the Ministry of Education Deputy Director of Schools Tuan Haji Mohd Nor Ismail said the SC has to upgrade its Information Technology systems regularly to ensure that it is able to carry out its responsibilities in an effective manner. The SC is a statutory body under the purview of the Minister of Finance, in charge of regulating and developing the Malaysian capital market.

Dr Nik Ramlah said that the SC was happy that there were others who could benefit from those computers which were in good condition but no longer met the needs of the SC.

The SC will be giving away the computers in a few batches from now until the middle of next year. This is the second time that the SC is donating computers to schools through the Ministry of Education; the first was in December last year, when the SC donated 80 computers.

Dr Nik Ramlah also said that she hoped securities firms which were upgrading their IT systems would also consider donating their computers to schools.

SK Bandar Baru Bangi was selected by the Ministry of Education as a recipient of those computers as it is a "feeder" to a smart school. The school will set up a Computer Club next year.
