KUCHING: Kesatuan Guru Bumiputera Sarawak (KGSB) president Ahmad Malie said that the state government’s decision to postpone the reopening of schools in red zones was wise.

In saying this, Ahmad is confident that schools which reopened on Monday (March 1) were well-prepared.

“We hope the public understand and accept the state government’s decision to postpone the reopeing of schools in the red zones. This is one of the measures to break the chain of Covid-19 transmission.

“The home-based teaching and learning process (PdPR) for students in the red zones will continue so that they won’t be left behind in their studies. As for the schools that have reopened, we hope that thorough preparations have been made to enforce the standard operating procedures (SOPs),” he said

“We hope that everyone will give their cooperation to ensure that face-to-face learning can be done smoothly. Thus, KGBS urged everyone involved to always be patient and stay calm,” he said.
