Kuala Lumpur: The Ministry of Education (MOE) is committed to ensuring that face-to-face schooling sessions for 2022 can be implemented throughout the year via several initiatives, including compliance with standard operating procedures (SOPs), said its Senior Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin.

He said his Ministry would also always hold discussions with the Ministry of Health (MOH) to ensure that students could attend physical classes despite realising that there was an increased risk of Covid-19 infection.

“Sometimes, as the schools start to open and start to feel comfortable, so we have asked the State Education Department and the district education office to go down to the ground to ensure that the SOPs are always complied with, especially the wearing of face masks and good ventilation.

“Ventilation is another component that we always emphasise, not only in the classrooms, but also in teachers’ rooms and special rooms,” he told the media after the Senior Minister of Education’s Aspirations ceremony, here, Friday.

“We always sit down to discuss and take the views of the MOH, and we are confident that with the cooperation of parents, children and schools, insyaAllah (God willing) our children can continue to attend school face-to-face for the year 2022,” he said.

Meanwhile, Radzi said that the MOE’s focus for this year would also be on the development of a new curriculum.

“The curriculum has its cycle and for this year’s cycle, it has ended. This means that Year 6 students have completed the current curriculum cycle.

“We take into account all the views given, and insyaAllah we will ensure that the development of this curriculum will take into account, not only the views but also the conditions and environment out there, to ensure that our children are ready when they leave the education system after six years in primary school and five years in secondary school.

“By then, what has been learned will still be relevant to the current situation,” he said.
