Education Minister Datuk Dr Mohd Radzi Jidin yesterday announced that all students from non-examination classes who went home for the Chinese New Year (CNY) holiday will not be allowed to return to their hostel. Instead, these students will continue their lessons through home-based teaching and learning (PdPR).

As reported by national news agency Bernama, Radzi said the decision was made in order to protect students who would be sitting for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination this year from possible Covid-19 infection. The Education Minister further clarified,

“We will continue to ensure compliance with standard operating procedures (SOP) in boarding schools, in particular, can be improved. The Education Ministry has also stepped up monitoring in schools to ensure all SOPs can be complied with and can reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection,”
