Ministry hopes to have briefing on new curriculum for Chinese schools

Thursday, 24 November 2016


PUTRAJAYA: The Education Minis­try hopes to arrange a briefing for Chinese conforming schools on the new Standard Curriculum for Secondary Schools (KSSM), which will be implemented next year.

According to Deputy Education Minister, Datuk Chong Sin Woon, many people were worried about the time allocation in the school timetable, which would affect the Chinese Language subject.

School principals have to understand the circular issued by the ministry earlier this month, which stressed that the implementation of the Chinese Language in conforming schools was still subject to the circular issued on Nov 16 in 2000 allocating 200 minutes a week for the subjects for Chinese schools.

A lot of SMJKs are confused if the new time allocation would mean that Chinese Language cannot be included in the timetable and would have to be conducted through POL (Pupils Own Language) classes. However, the school timetable is flexible and is determined by the principal.
