Replace last year’s lost school days


KUCHING: The Ministry of Education (MOE) has been urged to review the school holidays in order to replace the missing 100 school days of last year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In making this call, Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Datuk Amar Dr James Jemut Masing said the ministry should find ways to make up for those lost school days.

“The missing 100 days of normal school days last year must be replaced once normal classes resume from next month.

“This replacement is essential in rural areas where there is minimal or no internet services,” he said on Monday (Sept 27).

The Baleh assemblyman noted that online learning was used to replace the missing days but has not been effective in rural areas.

“Where there are no internet services, teachers have been asked to despatch their lessons to rural schools and the parents were asked to collect them.

“But it is has not been successful due to logistical problems,” said Masing.
