PONTIAN: More than 1,500 Form Five students here are set to benefit from a free online tuition programme to help them prepare for the Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination.

Students from nine schools and a vocational college here would be involved in the programme, now into its sixth year, said Deputy Plantation Industries and Commodities Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wee Jeck Seng.

“The programme is our continued efforts to assist students, especially those sitting for major examinations, as I understand there are those who faced difficulties in catching up with their studies during the Covid-19 pandemic when classes were affected.

“The free online tuition classes will begin in July until December,” said the Tanjung Piai MP after launching the programme in conjunction with the Pontian-level Teachers Day celebration at SMK Dato Penggawa Barat yesterday.

Wee reminded teachers not to be selective about the students who would be involved in the programme.

“As long as they are Form Five students, they should be able to receive the password from their respective school in order to access the website at The programme is also a form of talent-building to produce more competitive individuals,” he said.

The schools involved are SMK Dato Mohd Yunus Sulaiman, SMK Pekan Nanas, SMK Telok Kerang, SMK Tan Sri Osman Mohd Saat, SMK Sri Kukup, SMK Dato Penggawa Barat, SMK Dato Ali Hj Ahmad, SM Pei Chun, Sekolah Maahad Pontian and Tanjung Piai Vocational College.

Form Five students in the district can also head to the Tanjung Piai MP’s service centre in Jalan Besar, Pekan Nanas, or call 07-699 1025 for more information.
