Strict SOP compliance vital

Date:

KUCHING: Strict compliance to the standard operating procedures (SOPs) is vital and the Ministry of Education (MOE) may need to review the guidelines for both primary and secondary schools, said Datuk Richard Wee.

The Kuching Chung Hua Middle School (CHMS) No.1, 3 and 4 Board of Management Committee chairman was commenting on the reopening of schools in Sarawak soon.

He told the New Sarawak Tribune that he was personally looking forward to the resumption of the schools in physical classes.

On the SOPs, he pointed out these included social distancing among the students.

“The schools may need to put a smaller number of students per class, go for regular sanitisation and make the wearing of face masks compulsory.  

“The schools may also need to look into their infrastructure such as the number of classrooms and canteens to decide what is the best method for the students to meet the SOPs.   

“However, we are very much guided by MOE’s guidelines and policies. With the vaccination rate progressing well in Sarawak and the special effort and arrangements for all the teachers to be vaccinated together with the current SOPs fully implemented, I am optimistic that schools can reopen from September onwards.

“I am sure that can be done when the herd immunity against Covid-19 is achieved in August.  

“Hopefully, with the reopening of the schools, all those with examination classes will be able to gather speed,” he said.

Wee also hoped that there would be new guidelines for vaccination of students below 18.
