On the first day of school at SK Bandar Baru Putera in Tanjung Rambutan, Perak, parents and students were delighted to be welcomed back by their cherished security guard, K Kittu, also affectionately known as Uncle Kittu. He revealed that his contract with the school had been extended until the end of the year.

Uncle Kittu gained widespread recognition in November when a viral video captured his farewell, during which he received love and gifts from both students and teachers. The heartwarming clip garnered over 2.1 million views across various social media platforms and earned more than 200,000 likes.

Despite an initially failed job offer at another school in Taman Sri Klebang, Uncle Kittu expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to resume duties at SK Bandar Baru Putera, stating that the warm reception from students and the unwavering support of parents touched him deeply. According to Abd Halim Majid, the school’s parent-teacher association secretary, the decision to extend Uncle Kittu's contract was proposed by parents and received unanimous approval, emphasizing the strong community bond with the beloved security guard.
