TAWAU: Yuk Chin Kindergarten was the only one out of seven Chinese-type primary schools (SJKC) in Tawau that resumed classes on Wednesday after the three months Covid 19 break with about 30 per cent attendance. 

Its Principal Chong Nyuk Len said they opened 17 classes for kindergarten level one (four year-old), level two (five year-old) and level three (six year-old). Yet, there were only a few children of kindergarten level one attending. The schooling time remained from 8am. until noon.

Chong said the kindergarten has 372 children and only 104 responded. 

“We have 30 teachers and we did not encounter any problem on the first day school reopened. We also followed the standard operating procedures (SOPs) stated by the Education Ministry (KPM).

“We hope to get cooperation from the parents or guardians in ensuring their children put on face mask in the school compound. 

A temperature test will be carried out by the teachers at the main gate Children with more than 37.5 degree Celsius are not allowed to enter the school. All the children are forced to wash their hands with soap or hand sanitizer before entering their classroom,” she said.

All parents not allowed to enter the classroom and must send and pick their children up at the appointed time. Children who feel unwell are not allowed to go to school.

Also present on the first day school reopened were the chairman of the kindergarten board of directors Shim Paw Fatt (JP), principal of SJKC Yuk Chin Pang Dan Fung and chairman of the Federation of Chinese Associations Tawau Datuk Dr. Lim Teck Kiong.
