SK Taba Sait’s Students Encouraged to Practice Recycling Lifestyle at Home

KUCHING: About 100 students and teachers of SK Taba Sait recently took part in its third Recycling Awareness Day event, which was jointly carried out by the Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) and Trienekens (Sarawak) Sdn Bhd. Held at the Bengoh Resettlement Scheme (BRS), the event is a culmination of a year-long environmental education programme which focuses on raising awareness on the proper waste management and best recycling practices. 


RECYCLING CHAMPIONS…MPP’s Deputy Chairman, Cr. Dato Ahmad, Trienekens’ Chief Operating Officer, Alice Lee and SK Taba Sait’s Headmaster George Silek with winners of the inter-class recycling competition together with their teachers.

Speaking at the event, MPP’s Deputy Chairman, Cr. Dato’ Ahmad bin Dato’ Ibrahim explained that waste management takes high priority on the Council’s agenda and the Council will continue to raise awareness about the issue. “With the growing population and developments, the generation of waste also increases,” said Dato’ Ahmad. “We have to maintain a satisfactory level of cleanliness and also improve our recycling rate. Minds and habits need to change starting from adults while our children are taught and encouraged to do the same at home and schools. I urge all parents and residents in the area to be actively involved in any cleanliness and recycling programmes in their neighbourhood so all can mutually benefit from a clean and healthy environment.”     


Trienekens’ Chief Operating Officer, Alice Lee commended the school for their dedication and commitment in carrying out the programme successfully for the third year since its introduction in 2017. “The students and teachers have done well in running the recycling programme at the school,” said Lee. “We encourage the students to expand their recycling awareness beyond the school compounds and practice them at home as well as in their neighborhood. Separating and recycling waste correctly, refraining from littering and using the bins properly are easy small steps which can make a difference to our environment and natural resources.”

The year-long programme engaged both students and staff to practice segregating their school waste from the point-of-generation supported by a fixed collection schedule carried out by Trienekens. SK Taba Sait is one of several schools under the Council’s jurisdiction to adopt the recycling programme due its on-going commitment towards becoming a green school. 


Trienekens and MPP also organised additional environment-themed educational activities such as the ‘Wise Up to Waste’ awareness talk, Amazing Green Race game, inter-class most collected recyclables contest; colouring, poster design and eco-fashion competitions as well as other green initiatives for the school.



Since the incident of the anchor block at the Matang side tilting during the overall Satok bridge load test, JKR have undertaken an intensive programme of investigations including soil investigation, design and construction review, and daily close monitoring for any further movements of the anchor block. Among the initiatives taken to ensure the stability of the structure is the precautionary measure of taking off the bridge deck plates to reduce the weight and hence the forces acting on the distressed anchor block.

The Ministry of Infrastructure and Port Development has also agreed on the engagement of independent consultants to review the overall bridge design as well as carry out a detailed geotechnical assessment to find out the likely causes of the tilting of the anchor block and to propose permanent rectification work for the bridge.

At this juncture, the bridge is now stable and no further movements of the anchor block is expected. Nevertheless, JKR will still continue to closely monitor the bridge.

With the stability of the bridge having been assured, JKR is now working on a proposed permanent remedial solution, and this will independently assessed and checked by the independent consultants. Remedial works will only proceed when the independent consultants have completed all due checking processes and submitted a final Report and detailed permanent solution to JKR.

A permanent remedial solution is expected to be tangibly worked out by the end of October. Once the finalised detailed drawings and plans have been submitted to JKR, remedial works by the contractor would proceed diligently.

Meanwhile, further site works on the affected structure have been temporarily suspended to avoid and minimise any claims from the contractor due to the downtime.
