Latar Belakang PDK Selayang

PDK Selayang (Pusat Pemulihan Dalam Komuniti Selayang) telah ditubuhkan pada 1hb Sept 1991, oleh sekumpulan ibubapa kepada kanak-kanak kurang upaya (pada masa tersebut dipanggil sebagai kanak-kanak istimewa) yang anak-anak mereka telah dikeluarkan dari pembelajaran wajib di sekolah-sekolah aliran perdana di Selayang, dengan alasan mereka (OKU tersebut) "tidak boleh belajar". Alasan sebenar Guru Besar sekolah-sekolah tersebut ialah mereka takut graf pencapaian sekolah akan menurun.

Bermula dengan 15 orang kanak-kanak kurang upaya kelas diadakan sekali seminggu pada setiap hari Sabtu dari jam 8:30 pagi hingga 1:00 tengahari, dengan dilatih oleh seorang Petugas PDK (panggilan Cikgu PDK pada masa tersebut) iaitu Puan Noraini Othman.

Goalposts : Is the Serial Killer? : 'Accidents' in schools must stop

The rusty goalpost that toppled and took the life of 14-year-old Teoh Chao Sheng while he was playing football at a field in Larkin, Johor Baru, in July 2005. Similar incidents have happened in several schools and playgrounds.

Similar incidents have happened in several schools and playgrounds.
p/s : 6 cases of fatalities was reported in 10 years, maybe it's more with unreport cases!
 
DEATH comes in many guises, or so goes an old saying, but from a falling goalpost is one of the least expected.

Yes, accidents can happen anywhere and sometimes they are unavoidable, unless we can turn back time.

But there are accidents that can be prevented, and would not have happened if certain precautions were taken.

These are unacceptable. More so if they occur in a place we trust our children to be safe -- school. Or when they are with people we trust to keep them safe -- teachers.
On Saturday, an 11-year-old Liverpool fan died when a goalpost fell on him in the school field.

Muhammad Fakhrul Amin Abdul Rahman, a Year Five pupil at SK Kampung Jawa 2, in Klang, was playing football with his friends when his head was crushed in what journalists would usually refer to as a "freak accident".

There's nothing freakish about the accident, however. Death by falling goalpost is not entirely rare as it has happened several times in school fields around the country.

Just last year, in Kepala Batas, Mohd Khairi Iskandar Onzek, 8, died when a goalpost landed on his chest.

In 2008, a 10-year-old student died at the SK Taman Sri Wang field. The killer? A falling goalpost.

In 2000, two Pahang schoolboys were killed when goalposts in school fields fell on them.

The death of the two boys came within six days of each other. One was playing football when the goalpost toppled over and landed its full weight on him, while the other was crushed by a goalpost (not the same one) while he was in the midst of warming-up exercises.
