Malaysian students will attend classes on March 1st, according to the Minister of Education.

Students in Malaysia will return in phases to schools, starting on Mar 1 with pre-schoolers as well as primary 1 and primary 2 students. Senior Education Minister Mohd Radzi Md Jidin said in a press conference that the majority of the primary students will return to school a week later, on March 8. “For secondary schools, all levels will attend schools on Apr 4 or Apr 5 (depending on states),” he said.

They will return to their classrooms on April 4 in Johor, Kedah, Kelantan, and Terengganu, while the rest will return on April 5. The dates refer, the minister said, to all government and private schools registered with the ministry. Dr. Mohd Radzi clarified that pre-schoolers and lower primary students are scheduled to start schools early to enable teachers to familiarize themselves with the basic operating procedures of the schools.
