KUALA LUMPUR: All schools, kindergartens, boarding schools, private schools, vocational colleges and matriculation colleges registered under the Education Ministry will be closed from Oct 17 to Oct 30 following the enforcement of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) in Labuan.

In a statement issued by the Ministry today, it said the closure will involve 31 educational institutions and 19,262 students.

“This also involves those at boarding schools. Parents or guardians should pick the students up from the boarding schools back to their respective homes.

“However, students who are waiting for their parents to pick them up, or students who wish to stay at the boarding schools throughout the period will be under the care of the warden.

“Food and drink supplies will be provided as well,” it said.

It also said students who are still staying at the Labuan Matriculation College hostel are allowed to return home, but they should heed to the standard operating procedures (SOP) set by the respective state governments.

For students who are sitting for scheduled international examinations, it said they should obtain letters from their respective schools to attend the examination.

The learning process for students during the closure should be given attention, the ministry stressed.

“The educational institution administrators are ordered to ensure that teachers, lecturers as well as students conduct teaching and learning online.

“Home teaching and learning manuals can be downloaded from the Ministry’s official portal at www.moe.gov.my,” it added.

Labuan has become the latest area to be placed under the CMCO, following in the footsteps of Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, Selangor and Sabah.
