Free online tuition for 318 pupils

Date:

KUCHING: Three hundred and eighteen pupils in Nangka state constituency started their free online tuition this month, said its assemblyman Dr Annuar Rapaee.

The Education, Science and Technological Research assistant minister said they comprised primary four, five and six pupils.

“They joined the free tuition programme for two subjects — Science and Mathematics.

“Huge thanks to the nine specialist teachers involved in the programme,” he wrote on a Facebook post yesterday.

Dr Annuar also reminded the pupils to be aware of their own schedules and to make sure they get their passwords for login purposes on Zoom for video conferencing.

“Parents, make sure our children are learning during the conditional movement control order (CMCO) and follow the online classes,” he said.

Last month, the Nangka education committee with the help of the Nangka service centre pioneered the free online tuition initiative for the constituents.

Last month, Dr Annuar said that the programme is to ensure that pupils in the constituency are not left behind in their studies during the movement control order (MCO).

He added that with nine specialist teachers roped in for the purpose, the programme was well received by parents.

“At the beginning, the Nangka education committee only wanted to take in 180 pupils, but due to overwhelming demands, the teachers agreed to accept all the registered pupils,” he said.
