Underused Pedestrian Bridges

Despited the existence of pedestrian bridges along the main road of Parit Raja, many still choose not to use them when crossing the road. The main road is very busy with so many cars, buses, lorries are passing the town as the road is a major link to many places such as Batu Pahat town and Kluang. Perhaps it's high time for the relevant authorities to take some stern action on these defiant people.

The candidates represented two opposing 'parties' namely Pro-Mahasiswa and Pro-Aspirasi. Towards the election day, supporters of the candidates were seen putting up banners, posters around the campus and created a mini 'poster war'. They also campaigned by giving talks and presented their manifesto to the voters.

The end of UPSR

Yesterday was the last day of UPSR examination for Standard 6 pupils around the country. In Parit Raja, there are several primary schools in the town which were also the centres for the national examination. On the last day, the pupils sat for the Maths and Science papers which ended at 1 pm. Nevertheless, they were not allowed to go home after that as they had to sit for an aptitude test after lunch. At 4 pm, the pupils were seen rushing out from the hall looking very relieved. Some were heard shouting 'Merdeka! Merdeka! Merdeka! cry, indicating that they were free from the UPSR which has burdened them for many months.
