First semester for academic year 2021 will commence on June 14: education minister


The date was originally set for May 17 but was changed twice – to June 1 and then June 14 – in a bid to curb Covid-19 from spreading.

“The ministry has tasked all schools to prepare for the reopening and adjust their teaching based on one or more of five approaches to suit the situation in their respective area,” she said.

The five approaches are:

1. On-site: schools offer teaching at their facilities as usual.

2. On-demand: teaching is provided via mobile applications.

3. Online: teaching is provided online via the internet.

4. On-hand: lesson and exercise materials are delivered to students at home.

5. On-air: teaching is provided via satellite TV programmes to students in remote areas.


“Schools that choose the on-site approach must prioritise the safety of students from Covid-19 and provide necessary facilities such as hand-washing stations and spaced seating in classrooms to maintain social distancing,” Treenuch said.

“They are also urged to include lessons on Covid-19, such as its nature and how to stay safe from the virus,” she said.

Thank you Brewsterbudgen, I was curious to know what the latest was regarding the reopening after hearing about it just a few hours ago from my Thai wife. Couldn't find out hardly anything on the internet. Then after translating Thai news and then seeing Richard Barrows tweet I thought I can't be the only one who doesn't know the latest. So I thought I'd let everyone know here in this post. I'm retired and living out here with my wife and son. Must be difficult for teachers out here trying to earn a living especially now finding out they don't start back on Monday. I guess they can try working online too.
