KUCHING, June 6: All schools in Malaysia will continue with the home-based learning and teaching (PdPR) for another 25 school days from June 13 and 14 until the mid-school break on July 16 and 17.

Education Minister Dr Mohd Radzi Jidin said when the current mid-year holiday ends on June 13 for states under Category A and June 14 for those in Category B, the teaching and learning process will resume until the next mid-school break.

He said the mid-school break will begin from July 16 to 25 for schools in states under Category A and from July 17 to 26 for those under Category B.

“Now based on this calendar, classes are to resume starting June 13 and 14. So, many parents must be asking about the approach that we will be taking for this schooling period.

“Taking into account the current situation, the Ministry of Education (MoE) has decided that all schools are to continue with PdPR during this period of time,” he said during a special televised press conference today.

As for the schooling session after the mid-school break, he said the announcements would be made at least one week before July 25 based on the Covid-19 situation at that particular time.

Mohd Radzi also said that this applies to all private, international and expatriate schools nationwide, meaning that these institutions must also implement PdPR during this period but based on their respective calendars.

States under Category A are Johor, Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu while Category B involves all the other states namely Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Perak, Perlis, Pulau Pinang, Sabah, Sarawak, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, Labuan and Putrajaya. — DayakDaily
