KUALA LUMPUR: The National Union of the Teaching Profession (NUTP) is urged school administrators not to hold any activities, including extra classes or academic programmes, during the school holidays.

NUTP secretary-general Harry Tan Huat Hock said throughout the school session students were burdened with too much homework.

He said NUTP hoped that students and teachers would be given the opportunity to take part in leisure activities during the holidays so that they could recover from the stress.

He added that students of different ethnic backgrounds should also be given the chance to celebrate Hari Raya Aidilfitri.

“During school holidays in conjunction with Hari Raya Aidilfitri, let the students and teachers rejoice while resting with their family and relatives, as well as friends to celebrate the meaningful Hari Raya,” he said in a statement here today.

The school holidays started yesterday and will continue until June 9 for Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, and Terengganu, while for other states, the holiday begins today and ends on June 10.
