Also, we have successfully developed an economic soundproof classroom at Sekolah Kebangsaan Kampong Pasir, Tampoi, Johor Bahru in our endeavor to reduce noise pollution coming from the traffic. This is the first of its kind installed in Johor State’s school. The project was realized through community engagement between the Department of Education of Johor, Education Ministry of Malaysia, Sekolah Kebangsaan Kampong Pasir, Sanjung Sempurna Sendirian Bhd, and Vibrant Echo.
