Hope has been expressed by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin that the My Tuition Learning Centre, an idea mooted by the Tan Sri Muhyiddin Charity Golf, can be expanded to help enhance the country's education delivery system. Opened on Monday, the centre at Taman Bukit Angkasa, Kerinchi, aims at providing free learning services to students in Lembah Pantai, especially those in Form Three and Form Five. Muhyiddin, the Education Minister, told that the centre was capable of motivating students to study by utilising advancements in information communication technologies.
Implementation of a pilot project is now being witnessed at the centre, at Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Sri Pantai, Kampung Kerinchi, providing the school with an ICT room with 50 multimedia computers as well as an air-conditioned resource centre. It was told by Muhyiddin that the centre was in line with the government's wishes to narrow the education gap irrespective of the students' socio-economic status. With the My Tuition Learning Centre, he added, students would have access to the facilities in a more conducive environment and this would help them enhance their respective academic performances.
