74 truant students to be assisted under 'Op Cicir'

Last Update: 02/01/2019

ARAU, Jan 2 (Bernama) – The Perlis State Education Department registered 74 truant students, in a programme billed ‘Op Cicir’, to ensure they attend school.

Its director, Izmi Ismail, said the students comprise eight primary school students and 66 secondary school students who skipped school for 60 consecutive days. 

According to Izmi, ‘Op Cicir’ is designed to help students who are unaware that they have been expelled or haven’t made appeals to continue schooling due to lack of knowledge on the procedures involved.

“This is why we decided to carry out Op Cicir to help these students,” said Izmi to reporters after witnessing the registration of Year 1 students of Sekolah Kebangsaan Kampong Serdang, Simpang Empat , here, today.

Izmi said expelled students are given a month to appeal to the school administration.

Meanwhile, Izmi declared that 3,851 Year 1 pupils and 3,200 Form 1 students have registered for the new school term at 74 primary schools and 28 secondary schools in the state today.
