ROH Community School Seremban

Overview

The Rohingyas are refugees who have been displaced from their homeland, Myanmar. They have been refugees in Malaysia for the last 20 years. There are several challenges faced by this group of people such as lack of formal education, and vulnerable to compromising situations.
ROH Community School Seremban is a learning centre dedicated for the refugee children within the community that is located in Seremban, Negeri Sembilan. It was established in 2014, attended by 51 students aged 4-12 years old. The students are divided into 3 groups (beginner, intermediate, advanced) based on their literacy level. There are 2 teachers funded by the UNHCR, who teach English, mathematics and Bahasa Malaysia. There is another young volunteer teacher who also teaches regularly. The teachers follow the curriculum set by the Malaysian Ministry of Education. The school hours are from 7.30AM – 1.00PM and religious studies are taught from 2.30PM – 4.00PM on Mondays – Thursdays. The school is deeply in need of help in terms of learning resources and classroom furniture.
