Rep hopes for smooth session with school reopening


SIBU: Education, Science and Technological Research Assistant Minister Dr Annuar Rapaee hopes for a safe and smooth commencement of the school session beginning today (Oct 4).

Speaking during the Sibu Covid-19 update live stream through his social media page, Dr Annuar said a total of 23 secondary schools in the district consisting of Form 5 and 6 classes will commence operation on Monday.

“All Form 6 students will commence face-to-face study while Form 5 students will go to school in turns.

“Only 50 percent of Form 5 students are allowed to attend school while the remaining 50 percent will attend the next week on rotation basis.

“This is to limit the number of students when they are in school as part of our effort to prevent the spread of Covid-19,” he explained.

Dr Annuar explained that before attending school, the students would be required to fill in an online form to ensure that they were safe to go to school.

“With the form as a report on the health status of students, it will facilitate the monitoring of the school,” said the Nangka assemblyman.

On another note, Dr Annuar advised out-of-school children without an identity card or birth certificate to apply to their community leaders for a support letter to get vaccinated.

He said the support letter can be handed over to him to be extended to the Sibu Divisional Health Office to enable the individual to be vaccinated.

“I have received a message about an individual who does not have any identification documents looking to get vaccinated. I don’t know why there are no identification documents but we can arrange and discuss with the Sibu Divisional Health Office to vaccinate them,” he said.
