“The postponement is inevitable due to the use of several schools as flood evacuation centres and floods at several other schools.

“It will take time for the teachers, parents and schoolchildren affected by the floods to make the necessary preparations by the time the school session starts,” he said in a statement.

He also advised the schools’ management that after the flood waters had subsided, they should use that time to organise gotong-royong to clean up the schools and compounds for the safety and comfort of the students.
