The new sixth form college in Kuala Belait is in its second year of operations. However, besides the administative office, laboratories and the library, the building runs without an air-conditioning system, including classrooms.
It is especially difficult for students suffering from eczema, with the heat and sweat exacerbating their condition further.
Another issue with the campus is it bearing closer resemblance to a prison than an educational institution, with a few patches of grass and not a single tree in sight.
I believe that students learn best in a comfortable environment. When both students and teachers have to fight the heat with their uniforms and work attire, it makes teaching and learning that much more challenging.
I hope the authorities could look into the matter and expedite the installation of an air-conditioning system at the school.
