Schools in Kerian implement special programme to increase attendance

Last Update: 02/01/2019

BAGAN SERAI, Jan 2 (Bernama) -- Schools in the Kerian district have adopted the 'caring school' approach in an effort to increase students' attendance.

Kerian District Education officer Sopiah Mohd Saphi said that her office was targeting a 95 per cent overall school attendance rate in the district this year.

She said under the programme, the schools involved would hold a lucky draw for students who came early, besides inviting them to have breakfast with the teachers in the canteen.

"This programme is a kind of motivation for the students in ensuring school attendance can be increased," she said in a press conference at SK Jalan Matang Buluh here today.

Meanwhile, Perak State Education Department principal assistant director (student affairs) Suhaimi Jaafar said last year, Perak recorded a 95.6 per cent student attendance rate – the best in Malaysia.

Apart from that, he said some 4,000 to 5,000 students in the state were expected to receive RM100 in early school assistance beginning Jan 7.

He said the department was currently preparing the list of students eligible to receive the assistance, namely those from household incomes below RM3,000.
