No replacement classes for closed schools in Pasir Gudang



There will be no replacement school sessions for all 111 national and secondary schools closed in Pasir Gudang since last Tuesday due to the air pollution which caused respiratory problems and vomiting among students.

Johor Education director Azman Adnan said, however, that he would ensure that the schools make an alignment if there were any deficits in learning during the period of closure.

“We will ensure that the alignment will be made by the schools through specific learning activities. This (alignment) we will leave it to the schools," he told reporters after visiting SK Pasir Gudang Empat today.

“The alignment includes additional classes. But during the period of closure the State Education Department has provided various alternative study materials which can be obtained via WhatsApp, Telegram, email, virtual learning environment (VLE) and Eduweb TV."

Azman said that on the whole, schools which reopened today operated as usual and students attendance was good.

“So far, the school session has been normal and students also seem to be looking forward to going back to their schools today,” he said.

He said at the same time, the Johor Health Department would also provide safety and prevention briefings to 18 schools today including SMK Tanjung Puteri Resort, SMK Taman Nusa Damai, SK Pasir Gudang Empat and SK Kopok.
