BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Jan 7 (Borneo Bulletin/ANN): Minister of Education Dato Seri Setia Awang Hamzah Sulaiman made a working visit to the Sufri Bolkiah Secondary School, which is temporarily housed at the Muda Hashim Secondary School building.

The Sufri Bolkiah Secondary School building is being used as the COVID-19 Holding Area in Tutong, said the Ministry of Education (MoE).

The minister and his delegation toured the facilities in anticipation of the second stage of school re-openings during the Endemic Phase.

The delegation also scrutinised the current situation of the first stage of school reopening and visited students in their Year 10 and 11 classes while giving the students moral support in preparation for their Brunei-Cambridge GCE ‘O’ Level and IGCSE exams.

The minister toured the school’s multi-purpose hall where antigen rapid tests are carried out, teachers’ rooms, class rooms, laboratories, prayer rooms, canteen and ablution areas.

According to the MoE, the Minister had been making working visits to government educational institutions since last December to ensure standard operating procedures for physical learning are in place.

The ministry also said visits were made to institutions under the MoE during the first and second days of the start of the 2022 academic year by separate delegations led by the minister, deputy minister, permanent secretary and deputy permanent secretary (core education). - Borneo Bulletin/ANN
