By relocating the school, population increased from 8 to 45 to 222 in 11 years! That’s nearly 28-fold increase. Hendak seribu daya, tak hendak seribu dalih (where there is a will, there is a way).

National Land Finance & Cooperative Society (NLFCS) president Tan Sri K. R. Somasundaram said that Tamil schools had not only provided education but instilled moral and religious values in children.

He was speaking to reporters after opening the annex building of the Cairo Estate Tamil School in Mantin and attending its annual prize-giving function on Monday.

He said that previously there were only eight pupils in the school when it was in the estate in 2000 and enrolment increased to 45 in 2003 after it was relocated to Mantin. Currently, it has 222 pupils.
