Home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) methods will be implemented at all schools after the mid-year holidays. This includes private, international, and expatriate schools that are registered with the education ministry.
For public schools, this means PdPR will be used during the 25 days between the mid-year and mid-term holidays. Other schools may adapt PdPR to their schedule.
Senior Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin added that further announcements will be made a week before the end of the mid-term holidays regarding the next school session based on the current situation at that time.
