Non-exam Class Students of Boarding Schools to Follow Home-based Teaching and Learning Sessions

Students of non-examination classes who returned home for the Chinese New Year holidays recently are not permitted to return to their boarding schools.

Senior Minister of Education, Datuk Dr. Radzi Jidin said those students will instead follow the home-based teaching and learning process (PdPR) fully.

According to him, the decision is made to ensure the candidates of Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) 2021 are protected and can sit for examinations safely.

“We will ensure that compliance with SOPs at boarding schools under the Ministry of Education (KPM) is heightened.

“At the same time, we will also increase monitoring at day schools to ensure good compliance with SOPs.”

He said so via a video uploaded on Facebook yesterday.

He also appealed to parents to ensure their children are not present at school if experiencing any symptoms.

“This is to ensure a safe school environment.

“We will collectively ensure that schools can continue to open and the schooling session next week can resume smoothly.”

In the same development, Radzi stated that throughout January till February, a total of 100 education clusters were detected involving institutions under the Ministry of Education.

Overall, a total of 8,451 positive cases were detected involving education clusters out of  118,238 cases nationwide. 

“Out of 96 clusters, 84 clusters involved boarding institutions, in which 74 clusters involved day boarding schools and eight clusters involved full boarding schools.

“Besides that, a total of 12 clusters were detected involving non-boarding schools, with two clusters at secondary schools and 10 clusters at primary schools,” he added.
