Students of SMJK Yuk Choy, Ipoh can now utilise new SmartONE multi-touch displays in their classrooms, as well as go-green-themed toilets.

A total of fifteen 65-inch full HD SmartONE displays were installed in the school’s new 5-storey building. It is a 5-in-1 multimedia technology containing projector, whiteboard, HD TV, computer and speaker. It provides a wide-range of interactive software for educators to ensure efficient delivery, enhance interactivity and facilitate students in E-learning, as well as U-learning.

“In recent years, a number of facilities have been built, such as a new block, a huge auditorium, an upgraded school gate, re-roofing old buildings and new toilets. In line with the 21st-century classroom concept, we installed these smartboards,” said Chan Hen Huan, Principal of SMJK Yuk Choy during the launch on Tuesday, February 23 at the school compound.

“We reused the old roof tiles in building the go-green themed toilets. There are 16 cubicles for boys and 18 cubicles for girls. Each block has one cubicle for the disabled.  Natural light and natural ventilation are the vogue. Used water from wash basins is channelled to clean up the urinals. Later, the washrooms will be linked to a rain-harvesting system too,” Chan Swee Weng, President of the Parent-Teacher Association told Ipoh Echo.

Present at the morning ceremony were guest-of-honour Mohd Yusof Hassandi, representing the North Kinta District Education Officer and Kwan Foh Kwai, Chairman of the Board of Governors of the school.
