    Danger in Sekolah Kebangsaan USJ12

    I would just like to warn parents of children who are attending the Primary school in USJ12. My little girl fell into the uncovered drain just outside the school yesterday. Apparently these holes, and there were at least three of them have been left uncovered for over a year. Luckily she only have some bruises and no serious injury. The people from the school mentioned that they have requested MPSJ to cover up these dangerous holes but unfortunately nothing was done. I will make a complain to MPSJ.

    Sometimes..complaining is no use..They just write down your report, file it then put it to a "trash" drawer.
    You can email me at icehart@usj.com.my

    Last Saturday I was at MPSJ to report on other matter when I decided to check with the complaint dept whether a report has been lodged on this missing drain covers. Coincidently, just an hour before me, the father of the injured child has just filed in an official complaint. Apparently, the school has reported the incident much earlier. The only action taken by MPSJ so far was to place three plastic road barriers over the hole as a temporary measure. So far no further action was taken. I called up the school headmistress and suggested that instead of waiting for MPSJ to take further action and God knows when, the school might as well asked the PIBG to foot the bill first to immediately replace the 3 missing drain covers. Mr Lee's daughter was very lucky that she only suffered bruises on her arms. It could have been worst. I have seen a boy whose face was "shaved" by the sharp edges of the walkway as he went down the drain. He nearly lost his nose. Since I was told by Mr Lee that after the incident, another girl fell into the drain again, I decide that I will look for a contractor to replace the covers before end of the week and passed the bill to the school. This thing just can't wait. If MPSJ came with the 3 covers, the school can then keep them as ready stock to replace any future missing covers.

    I don't understand why the school must wait for funds or MPSJ to do something about it. If its urgent do it first! If you want to wait for them to do it for you, you can wait till the cows come home.
    I studied in missionary schools (primary & secondary) and our school was only partly funded. Anything the school wanted done, we had to raise the money and do it ourselves.

    You are right. The contractor whom I have contacted will be there this afternoon to do the measurement and if the cost is less than RM 100.00, we might as well go ahead and do it rather than asking MPSJ to do it.. Of course I will seek the consent of the headmistress or else who will reimburse me. I can foresee MPSJ's problem as these drain covers are not the standard size.

    Err...for the record...Orchi's punya anaks do not attend to this school...

    Orchi pledges 50 ringgit for these 3 missing drain covers...please get them done...n secured with plugs...n you can collect the money from Orchi...period...

    This would only put some shame on the PIBG fellas...malu lah dalam soal soal kemasyarakatan USJ kami...

    Orchi, it is very generous of you wanting to contribute your part. That makes me even more motivated to get this done by tomorrow. All of us want to see this dangerous situation settled. I have received 3 PMs so far pledging to share the cost. If that is the case, then I do not need the headmistress' approval. We just do it so to as to make it safe for the children (not necessary ours) to walk to school. Even with the MPSJ road barrier, the children being playful can still remove it. Everytime I pass by that way, I have to see if those barrier are in place. I already advised the school to instruct its garderner or the guard to fill those barriers up with water so as to make them irremovable.

    Pls ensure that you get the kind of drain covers which is actually sealed to the ground but can still be opened (the flip kind or something). This is because I noticed the drain covers always goes missing(the grill kind which is just placed on top). Some idiot is going around stealing the drain covers.

    Thanks to PCYeoh for taking the initiative to fix the problem at such speed. We need more people like you!!. And thanks also for calling me up to discuss about the situation. It was indeed a pleasant surprise. Just a minor correction to what actually happened. My little girl was the second to fall after another girl fell in and they both fell within minutes of each other. Curiosity got the better of my girl as she went to have a look at the girl that fell in first and seconds later she fell into the adjacent hole while walking away!! I am also willing to share the cost of putting those covers in place if the PIBG is not doing the right thing.

    Hi PC Yeoh,

    I wish to contribute for the replacement of the drain covers too. Pls let me know how I can go about with it via my email : ninamoy@streamyx.com.

    BTW, what had happened to the school's PIBG? Have they been informed? Are you one of the committee members?

    Cheers,
    Nina

    I was surprised how expensive it was when I was quoted one for one replacment (iron grilles) for the 3 covers at RM 450.00!! I then contacted Alan Cheng who suggested that we use cemented to cover it and that I believe would be much less. This morning I went by and to my surprised it was done. Someone cement it the way suggested by Alan Cheng. I checked with Alan who said he never got to do that as he was busy with a project. I called MPSJ who couldn't even tell me what they have been doing or what is their response to this issue. They said they can't check if I can't provide the name of the complainant or the nombor rujukan. Their search engine is so lousy one. So if you are not the one who reported the problem, forget about your concern to follow up like in my case. So the holes are being covered up by one annonymous person which I am keen to know who.

    BTW, I am not sitting in the PIBG. Dua tahun sana sudah cukup. I believe the PIBG knows about it but I guess they are more interested in project that has keceriaan. Thanks to all those who offered to chip in.

    I fully agree with you! They will send you a letter to fulfill ISO 9001's requirements to inform you that the case has been resolved.....but you will be scratching your hand trying to figure out how could the case be resolved when the problem still persists!!
