Parents, teachers pledge support

Datin Noor Azimah Abdul Rahim

“It’s tough to be resilient during a pandemic. This batch of Form Five students have had no choice but to keep up with their studies. Even those with good Internet connectivity do not have it easy as they are stuck at their desks for long hours every day, trying not to lose focus, keep sane and not give up. It’s even more frustrating for those struggling with slow Internet connectivity and having to share devices with their siblings. Now imagine those who rely on educational

TV without being able to interact with their teachers as consistently as they could before schools closed! If parents are open to their children being vaccinated, then there is hope of returning to face-to-face learning in September.”

– Parent Action Group for Education Malaysia chairman Datin Noor Azimah Abdul Rahim

“They have to be strong. This group is even more affected by the pandemic (compared to the SPM 2020 cohort) and they need as much support and help as possible. Many parents are concerned over their children’s results and are hoping that the marking scheme remains fair. Studying from home requires discipline. Some may lose interest but those with grit and support from their parents will survive.”

– Melaka Action Group for Parents in Education chairman Mak Chee Kin

“History has shown us time and again that humans will always prevail in times of adversity. We always rise to the occasion to become better. However, we must not forget that it is also the role of teachers that will ultimately complement students’ tenacity to succeed. Passionate and devoted teachers will always go the extra mile and give their best because they know their students’ future is at stake.”

– National Union of the Teaching Profession secretary-general Harry Tan
