) and RM12 million to Chinese Private Secondary Schools (SMPC).
Today, Chow also announced a RM200,000 aid under his special allocation to SMJK
Jit Sin Bukit Mertajam.
In comparison, national schools will receive RM250 million next year for the same purpose, while national-type Chinese primary (SJKC) and Tamil primary schools (SJKT) will each receive RM50 million, full boarding schools (RM50 million), Maktab Rendah Sains MARA (RM50 million), mission schools (RM50 million), government-aided religious schools (RM50 million), tahfiz schools (RM50 million) and registered religious pondok schools (RM25 million) and conforming schools or national-type Chinese secondary schools (SMJK) at RM15 million.
Yesterday's Budget 2019 speech marks a return of SMJK or the conforming schools after being omitted in the budget speech for the last two years.
'If they do not have these documents, they can get verification from the community leaders or their people's representatives,'she told reporters after officiating a ceremony for the Gate of Alumni at Sekolah Menengah Jenis Kebangsaan (SMJK
