KUCHING: Sarawak Teachers Union (STU) urges everyone to be calm and supportive of the school reopening process so that students and teachers can safely return to school.
Its president Adam Prakash Abdullah stated that everyone must work together to ensure that schools will reopen smoothly.
“We (STU) believe that the teachers will be able to maintain control over the students and ensure that they learn to follow the standard operating procedures (SOPs).
“While the teachers are looking forward to the reopening of schools, I believe the parents are excited as well,” he said when contacted by New Sarawak Tribune on Saturday (Oct 2).
Adam hoped that all school administrators were prepared to receive the students when schools reopen beginning Oct 4.
“Sufficient time has been given for preparation, and I believe the SOPs have already been established since the Education Ministry (MOE) announced the plan for reopening of schools.
“However, parents should check with the school authorities on the dates of school reopening for the different classes,” he said.
Adam hoped that the Health Ministry (MOH) would continue with the Covid-19 vaccination programme for students even after school has resumed.
“We were told the vaccination programme will also be administered in schools to ensure all students are protected against the Covid-19 virus,” he said.
