Excited but scared at the same time



KUCHING: Although they are excited to revert to physical classes when schools reopen next month, some form six students have expressed their fear of contracting Covid-19.

They hope everyone will comply with the Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) to minimise the risk of the virus spreading in schools.

Malaysia Senior Minister of Education, Senator Datuk Dr Mohd Radzi Jidin recently confirmed the reopening of schools in National Recovery Plan (NRP) Phase 2 and 3 states.

This will be done in stages starting Oct 3.

Among the first batches of students to return to school will be Form Six students.

It is exciting to go back to school and return to the physical learning mode. I think if everyone obeys to the strict SOPs and take care of personal hygiene, everything will work out fine.

Siti Nurmashitah Bolki


(Upper six student)

I am ready to go back to school, especially with the examination coming up, but at the same time I am worried about the high number of Covid-19 cases. Hopefully, by the time we return to school, the number will go down.

(Upper six student)

I am ready to revert to physical classes and it is good to know that we are among the first batch of students to return to school. Physical classes are easier to keep up with than online classes.

Nur Syuhada Najwa Mohd Fikri Shafiq


 (Upper six student)

I am not ready for physical classes given the risk of getting infected by the virus, especially with the high number of cases recorded lately. I am not confident everyone will strictly adhere to the SOPs.

(Upper six student)

Although I am mentally prepared to go back to school, I think it will be challenging to adjust to the new norms of physical classes. Things will be different than the last time we were there.

Noryana Tulos


(Lower six student)

It is exciting to know we are going back to school next month because online classes have been very challenging to keep up with. I hope the number of positive Covid-19 cases in the state will decrease by the time we are allowed to return to school.

Harish Hannan Ezni Rais


(Lower six student)

Online learning has been challenging so I am relieved to hear that schools will reopen soon. I am looking forward to returning to school and reuniting with my friends and teachers as we adjust to the new norms in school.
