PENAMPANG – The Community Learning Centre (CLC) Cerdas has relocated to Kg Kitiau here recently.
It was officially opened by the Indonesian Consul General Akhmad DH Irfan on 26 Jan 2017 in the presence of Hj Wahad, Director of the Private Schools, State Education Dept, DSP Rosley, Head of Penampang District Police, Father Ambrose Atang, members of the Human Development Commission, CLC staff and pupils, the construction manager, Welly Abizar of Konstruksi Rekind, and village head Renee.
The centre was constructed with the help of the BUMN Indonesia and BUMN Malaysia, Rekaya Industri (Rekind) Sdn Bhd. It has six classrooms and one staff room. It is affiliated with the KK Indonesian School in Alamesra.
CLC Cerdas began in 2010 under Yohanis Solo with over 30 children at the Sacred Heart Parish Centre Karamunsing. Through the years the population has increased to over 300, necessitating a relocation to a more conducive place.
The construction began in 2016 and completed toward the end of the year.
There are around 210 CLCs in Sabah affiliated to the KK Indonesian School, catering to around 24,000 children of primary school level.
