It's surprising that there is a cluster school which won excellent award at such remote area in Ulu Lumbai. We can see all the colourful display of graphic materials and phrases on corridors, walls and in the small gardens outside. From my observations of villages in Sarawak, the best achievement that we should be proud of is that, although the places may be lacking of infrastructure but the basic education facilities at primary level are mostly available or accessible. In all schools that I came across in the villages, there were a few teachers from Peninsular Malaysia. The language taught at school has been spreading to the communities at large and Malay language thus becomes medium of communication especially for visitors like me.
