The reopening of schools in Kelantan and Terengganu tomorrow will be done in stages and not all students are required to attend the physical classes.
Senior Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin, who was in Terengganu to check the final preparation ahead of the reopening, said schools in the state were allowed to reopen in line the third phase of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).
He said Form 5 and Form 6 students would attend classes on rotational basis except for those in boarding schools and Form 6 Semester 2.
“Those in special classes at secondary schools will also be returning to classes fully as well as those attending pre-school and Integrated Special Education Programme (PPKI) in primary schools,” he added.
In Terengganu, Radzi visited seven schools including Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (SMK) Kuala Telemong; SM Sains Hulu Terengganu; Hulu Terengganu Form Six College; SMK Seri Berang; SMK Tengku Ampuan Intan; SMK Tun Indera and SMK Ajil.
During the visit, the senior minister also stressed on the need to ensure proper ventilation system in schools throughout the teaching and learning sessions.
“InsyaAllah, when schools reopen tomorrow in Terengganu; Kelantan and Langkawi, Kedah as well as on Monday for the states in group B, we hope everything will run in orderly, structured and smooth manner.
“Hopefully, the schools will also create an optimum ventilation system at the office and teachers’ room as well.
“Generally, the ventilation plan has been at a good level. But, there are still schools that needed to make some improvements to ensure all areas of the building have good airflow,” he said.
Radzi also reminded parents the importance of following the set guidelines as announced by the ministry in its comprehensive school operation plan.
