Home-based learning for two weeks after Raya school break, says Education Minister


PETALING JAYA: Home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) for all schools will be conducted for two weeks after the Hari Raya Aidilfitri school break.

Education Minister Datuk Dr Mohd Radzi Md Jidin said for schools that fall under the first category, PdPR will be held from May 16 to 27, while those under the second category will be from May 17 to 28.

“In the context of teaching and learning, the ministry has decided to implement PdPR for two weeks.

“This is to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission that could happen outside school during the festive season and could increase the transmission in educational institutions under the ministry, ” he said in a Facebook post Monday (April 26).

He said schools that fall under the first group will be on Hari Raya break from May 7 until 15, while the second group will be from May 8 to 16.
