Anthony Abell College (AAC) in Seria held a virtual orientation programme for its new intake of Year 7 students yesterday.

Ninety-nine students were registered under the school’s new intake of Year 7 students for 2022. They were accompanied by their parents and guardians during the orientation programme held via Microsoft Teams.

The programme began with a welcoming remark by Principal Mas Diana binti Abdul Samat, and deputy principals Azah Nor Azah binti Haji Marmin and Elmisuhardi bin Haji Rohani, followed by a talk delivered by Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) Chairman Suhaini bin Haji Othman.

The talk highlighted activities and programmes by PTA for the year.

The event was followed by a question-and-answer session, and concluded with a Doa Selamat.

The orientation session will continue tomorrow, comprising several talks by the school’s deputy principals, senior teachers and staff – covering academic issues, school rules and regulations, and discipline, welfare as well as counselling.

The new school term will see 80 per cent of new students attending physical lessons in the classroom and 20 per cent via online learning alternately.

Online learning will start on January 10, while physical lessons will commence on January 17.

Returning students are also required to take an antigen rapid test (ART) on the first day of physical attendance in the main hall, with standard operating procedures announced from time to time.
