SIBU (August 15): Sarawak’s longest skate arena, housed in the Sibu Active Youth Space (SAYS), is now fully equipped with free Wi-Fi.

Deputy Minister of Education, Innovation and Talent Development I Dr Annuar Rapaee remarked that this will allow the public to surf the internet while using the facilities.

“Our Prime Minister YAB of Sarawak (Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg), when approving the allocation for the construction of the longest skate arena (in the state) before, had wanted her to be equipped with a free Wi-Fi connection so that young people can surf the Internet to enrich their knowledge.

“Members of the public coming to this skate arena can simply sign up to enjoy free WiFi,” he told reporters after officiating at a ceremony to launch free WiFi at SAYS yesterday.

The Nangka assembly also announced that the skate arena will soon include a pumping track for BMX riders and a grandstand for spectators.

The Skate Cafe at SAYS will also soon be operational for members of the public to enjoy light meals with stunning views of the mighty Rajang River as a backdrop.

Additionally, the deputy minister noted that e-sports has been gaining momentum among young people and he will work with the Sibu Division Electronic Sports Association to roll out more e-sports competitions.

Also present at the ceremony were Councilor Jimmy De Rozario, Chairman of the Nangka Sports, Culture, Social Affairs and Unity Secretariat, and Sayed Azmee Wan Junaidi, Political Secretary to the Prime Minister of Sarawak.
