KUALA LUMPUR: Deputy Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Maglin Dennis D’Cruz yesterday advised Tamil school pupils to take advantage of the Bahasa Malaysia and English language media to develop their minds.
He said pupils could not depend on school books to widen their knowledge.
“Tamil media and books are important. However, when pupils are exposed to media in other languages, they can gain knowledge on national and international developments. Such media can help pupils to master Malay and English. Once you have mastered these languages, you can understand information from abroad.”
D’Cruz, who is vice-president of People’s Progressive Party, was speaking after opening the third annual delegates meeting of the Federation of Tamil Ex-Students Association of Malaysia at SJK (T) Saraswathy here.
He also said Tamil schools should be proactive in resolving problems. Bernama
