It has been close to a year since schools shifted their lessons online. Even though e-learning might seem challenging, it’s important for students to attend online
classes and study hard at home.
Prior to the movement control order, Starchild had asked readers to submit letters on the topic, Back To School and it is clear that students miss learning with their friends. Let’s read what our readers have to say.
Debria Preethi Jeyarajah, nine, is excited to learn new subjects like History during the new school term. “I am excited to start school but now, we are undergoing the movement control order. I hope students across Malaysia will stay safe during the pandemic.”
“I would feel happy about going back to kindergarten. I have a new pink backpack and watch, which I received during Christmas. I’m hope to see friends and teachers in school after the MCO, ” writes Nadia Asha Solomon, five.
Jodie Tan Li Juen, 11, misses school and her classmates. “Even though I have online lessons, I still miss my close friends. I miss eating and sharing our breakfast snacks with my buddies. And hanging out with our friends during recess.”
Younger sibling Jayden Tan Li Sheng, eight, says: “Although I am enjoying e-learning lessons, I do miss going to school. I miss playing with my friends during break time.”
“I miss walking with my sister to school every morning and going for my morning walks after that. But I also enjoy having my sister home with me now during the MCO. At home, we draw, sing and play and have a lot of fun together, writes Asher Wang Qi Chuen, three.
Five-year-old Bethany Wang Qi Syuen was looking forward to making new friends in kindergarten. “I was hoping to play together with and playing together in the school playground. For my online lessons, I am excited to learn some of my favourite subjects like Maths and English.” — Compiled by Sheela Chandran
