KANIGARAN – Wali Kota Probolinggo, Rukmini mengundang anak-anak SDLB (Sekolah Dasar Luar Biasa) dan SMPLB (Sekolah Menengah Pertama Luar Biasa) ke rumah dinas Wali Kota Probolinggo, Senin (22/10). Anak-anak ini diundang untuk membaca kegiatan membaca Al-Qur’an huruf braille bersama-sama memberi kesempatan MTQ Kota Probolinggo. Kegiatan tersebut sekaligus memperingati hari santri nasional ke-4 yang juga diberhentikan pada 22 Oktober 2018. 

“Kita yang lahir biasa-biasa saja harusnya mampu membaca Al Qur’an dengan baik. Anak-anak kita yang terlahir dengan keterbatasan, entah mampu membaca lebih baik dari kita. Ini menjadi pengingat bagi kami, terutama yang duduk di pemerintahan untuk lebih memperhatikan saran dan prasarana guna membantu anak-anak disabilitas di Kota Probolinggo, ”ujar Rukmini. 

“Anak-anak berkebutuhan khusus ini harus kita dukung, baik pendidikannya maupun kesehatannya. Jika kita dukung mereka, kita fasilitasi kebutuhannya, maka akan kita lihat anak-anak berkebutuhan khusus di Kota Probolinggo yang berprestasi. Ada anak yang bisa elektone utama, bahkan ada yang menang lomba MTQ, ”tambah Wali Kota.

“Saya ingin dapat mengikutsertakan anak-anak dalam berbagai kegiatan, agar mereka tidak bisa ditinggal. Kita harus membahagiakan mereka. Seperti saat ini, kita ajak mereka merayakan hari santri, kita dengar bersama-sama anak-anak kita ini membaca Al Qur’an dengan huruf braille. Semoga kegiatan ini menjadi ibadah bagi kita semua, ”pungkas Rukmini.

Dalam kesempatan itu, ada dua perwakilan anak berkebutuhan khusus yang membacakan huruf Al-Qur’an braille. Suara kedua dari SDLB dan SMPLB itu terdengar begitu merdu. Begitu mereka membacakan ayat suci itu, semua undangan terdiam. 

Seperti kita ketahui, Pemerintah Kota Probolinggo membuka beberapa sekolah inklusi. Di detail SD Jati V dan SMPN 3 Kota Probolinggo. Keberadaan SD inklusi ini menjadi penanda jika anak-anak berkebutuhan khusus dapat berbaur dengan anak-anak lainnya. (abdurhamzah / humas) 

 

KANIGARAN – Probolinggo Mayor Rukmini invited children from SDLB (Extraordinary Primary School) and SMPLB (Extraordinary Junior School) to the official residence of the mayor on Monday (10/22). These children were invited to attend Braille Al-Qur’an reading activities with the winners of the Probolinggo City MTQ competition. The event also commemorates the 4th national santri day which also falls on October 22, 2018.

“We who are born ordinary should be able to read the Qur’an well. Our children who are born with limitations can actually read better than us. This is a reminder for us, especially those in the government to pay more attention to infrastructure to help children with disabilities in the city,” said Rukmini.

“We must support these children with special needs, both their education and their health. If we support them, we facilitate their needs, so we will see children with special needs in Probolinggo city who are outstanding. There are children who can play electrons, some even win MTQ competitions,” added the Mayor.

“I hope we can include these children in various activities so that they do not feel left behind. We must make them happy. Like today, we invite them to celebrate the santri day, we listen to them reading the Qur’an in Braille. Hopefully our activities will become a worship service for all of us,” concluded Rukmini.

On that occasion, there were two representatives of children with special needs who read the Al-Qur’an Braille. The voices of the two children from the SDLB and the SMPLB sounded so sweet. As soon as they read the verse, all invitations were silent.

As is known, Probolinggo Municipality has several inclusive schools. Among them are elementary school SD Jati V and junior high-school SMP 3. The existence of elementary school inclusion is a marker if children with special needs can mingle with other children.
