Primary and secondary school students will be allowed to return to school starting October 3. In line with this decision, the Ministry of Education will introduce a weekly rotation system.
According to the Senior Education Minister Datuk Dr Radzi Jidin, the weekly rotation system is introduced to limit the number of students who can attend school at one time. Only 50% of the entire enrolment will be allowed on the school grounds to reduce the spread of the highly contagious COVID-19 virus.

To better understand how this rotation system works, Datuk Dr Radzi added that students in every class will be divided into two groups out of which, one group will be allowed to attend face-to-face sessions at school and the other group will continue with home-based teaching and learning.
Students learning from home will be provided with supporting materials to revise and review the concepts that had been taught the week before. Teachers can prepare learning materials for students to use as a guide or students can look for learning materials from other sources such as DidikTV.
This rotation will continue until the end of the schooling term.
