PUTRAJAYA – The government will ensure that students in about 300 schools that were affected by the floods could begin their schooling session according to schedule, said Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
While hoping for efforts to repair the affected schools could be speeded up, temporary measures were also being considered that is to place the students in schools nearby if the affected schools could still not be used when the new schooling session started, he said.
“If (sharing) for one or two months it’s okay, but not for one year,” said Muhyiddin, who is also the Education Minister, in his speech when sending off the Education Ministry’s Post-Flood Volunteers’ Mission at the ministry, here today.
The schooling session for the year 2015 was postponed for one week due to the floods.
The new schooling session for the states of Kedah, Kelantan, Terengganu and Johor starts on Jan 11 (Sunday) while for the other states the new date is Jan 12 (Monday). – BERNAMA
