Rokiah Mahmud

Schools are carrying out activities to help students acclimatise back to in-person learning again after almost 10 months of school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Siuknya ke Sekolah programme, recommended by the Ministry of Education, is being carried out in primary schools across the country to welcome students back.

Headmistress of Anggerek Desa Primary School Mardiah binti Wahab said the response for the programme at the school was encouraging.

She said teachers had observed students being excited and happy to be back on school grounds.

“There were students already in school as early as 6.15 in the morning,” she said.

“We know the students are not only excited to start face-to-face learning sessions, but also happy to see their classmates and and teachers again while adjusting to the new norms in the classroom.”

For Anggerek Desa Primary School, the Program Siuknya Ke Sekolah saw various interactive activities included a colouring competition, quizzes and a sharing session to gather students views of going to school.

The students were also briefed on the health guidelines and the standard operating procedures (SOPs) when they are in classrooms and were shown a video on the proper way to practise hand-washing and sanitising, as well as a video presentation on ‘Why do we need to come early to school?’
