Schools receive disinfectants, face masks

Date:

KUCHING: The Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) yesterday distributed face masks and disinfectants to schools in the Padungan area in preparation for the school reopening.

Its Kuching treasurer Jong Yean Pin hoped that the donation could provide parents peace of mind in seeing their children returning to school.

The Education Ministry announced recently that the National Security Council had decided for schools to reopen as soon as September.

“It may, however, still depend on the decision of the State Disaster Management Committee (SDMC).

“With the relentless efforts of the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) government and the SDMC, the current vaccination rate in Sarawak is about 61 percent.

“Having said that, we will be anticipating the day of school reopening. Along the line, I would like to appeal to students returning to school to abide by the standard operating procedures (SOPs) specified by the SDMC and comply with all preventive measures to stop the virus from spreading,” he reminded.

Jong disclosed that he has been constantly keeping in touch with all schools in the Padungan area and understood the problems they faced.

“I would like to express my gratitude and respect to the principal and all teachers in conducting online classes for over a year due to the pandemic,” he added.
