MELAKA: The percentage of primary pupils coming back to school on the first day of class is satisfactory, says Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Mah Hang Soon.

He said school managements had complied with standard operating procedures (SOP) and health safety measures as the operation of certain institutions under the Education Ministry resumed on Monday (Nov 1).

The resumption of classes was in line with provisions under Phase Four of the National Recovery Plan for Melaka, Selangor and the Federal Territories of Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya.

“The turnout of pupils at schools here today (Nov 1) was more than 76%, and that is something laudable.

“I urge parents to make efforts to send their children to school with all the safety measures in place,” he said after visiting six schools in Melaka Tengah, Jasin and Alor Gajah districts on Monday.

He added that the inoculation rate of Primary Six pupils in the state was also satisfactory.
