KUALA LUMPUR: The teaching and learning sessions for students who are sitting for major examinations in five states that are transitioning into Phase Two of the Movement Control under the National Recovery Plan (NRP) starting tomorrow will continue to be conducted via the home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) approach until the mid-term break.

The mid-term break for states in Group A will begin on July 16 and July 17 for states in Group B.

The Ministry of Education (MOE) in a statement today said the announcement on school reopening for the next term slated for July 25 would be made at least a week before.

“Based on the standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the National Security Council (MKN) for Phase Two of the movement control under PPN, face-to-face learning sessions are allowed for students sitting for examinations only.

“However, the MOE School Calendar for 2021 will remain as announced by Senior Education Minister Datuk Dr Mohd Radzi Jidin at a press conference on June 6,” read the statement.

During the press conference, Radzi said the PdPR would be implemented for 25 school days starting June 13 and 14 according to the respective groups until the mid-term break.

Yesterday, Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob announced that Perlis, Kelantan, Perak, Pahang and Terengganu would move to Phase Two of Movement Control under NRP starting tomorrow.

He said this decision was made based on the threshold values achieved by these states.

The three indicators for transition into phase two of the NRP are the national daily average Covid-19 cases must drop below 4,000, the utilisation of beds in the intensive care unit (ICU) should be at a moderate level and at least 10 per cent of the population should be fully vaccinated. – Bernama
