These inspections started after Radzi had a meeting with the Health Ministry and National Security Council on Thursday (May 21) to discuss the reopening and standard operating procedures (SOPs) for schools after the movement control order (MCO) is lifted.
Radzi said the Education Ministry was in constant discussion with the Health Ministry to see if their “School Management Post-MCO” guidelines needed tweaking.Among other things, the SOP revealed by Radzi two weeks ago specified that classes would be limited to a maximum of 20 students, no gatherings would be allowed and that canteens would distribute pre-packed food to students.
Based on his inspection, Radzi said Sekolah Seri Puteri, a full boarding school in Cyberjaya, still needed to prepare their classes, dining hall and hostels.SMK Bandar Baru Bangi, Bangi, on the other hand, would have to work on their classes, canteen and school compound to abide by the MCO, he added.
“These two schools are among those chosen to implement the guidelines and necessary improvements have been noted,” he said. Read more: The Star »
Stay home la RadziJidin Inspect ? Go resolve the SD issue of 40/50 students in a classroom first 20 students in a classroom Each row to have 4 or 5 pax ? It's still too many. If they all take their schoolbags (on the floor), move from their chairs, the distance will be less than 1 meter. Safer to put a distance of 4 meter between desks. Total 9 students per classroom.
