MIRI: SMK Chung Hua Miri is in the midst of prepping its classrooms in compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) set by the Ministry of Education (MoH), before welcoming its students back to school.
However, the returning students would only comprise those taking this year’s Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and Sijil Tinggi Persekolahan Malaysia (STPM) examinations – namely, those in Form 5 and Form 6, respectively.
According to principal Albert Ong, the school has yet to receive official information about the exact date for reopening, but it is preparing for it.
“We have been told that a notice would be given two weeks prior to reopening. I understand that many other secondary schools are also doing their part in ensuring top-level hygiene and cleanliness of their premises.
“We have spaced out the tables and the chairs to accommodate only 16 students per classroom.
“So based on this estimation, we would be using about 20 classrooms,” he told The Borneo Post yesterday.
Ong also said in compliance with the SOPs, the canteen’s layout had been rearranged to incorporate social-distancing markings on the floor, adequate spacing between chairs, the provision of facilities to accommodate frequent hand-washing, and also the provision of hand sanitisers.
“We have prepared disinfectant solutions for cleaning purposes, but for overall sanitisation of all classrooms, canteen, toilets and other facilities, we have tendered out our application for disinfection services by the Fire and Rescue Department.
“We would make the arrangements once the application is approved,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ong said SMK Chung Hua Miri’s students of Form 1 to Form 4 would
continue with their online learning from home via Google Classroom.
“Our teachers have been very busy administering homework, checking the updates and progress of their students, and handling other paperwork.
“We are all doing our part in making sure that our students could cope with their syllabus,” he added.
