PETALING JAYA: Schools in Perlis and Kedah, which were closed due to the heatwave, will resume classes today but outdoor activities are still suspended.

The Education Ministry said in a statement that all schools nationwide would resume lessons as temperatures had dropped.

It said the decision was made as the temperature over the last 72 hours was below 38°C.

The ministry also issued a directive for all schools to take precautionary measures such as ensuring that there was adequate supply of clean drinking water.

State Education Departments and district education offices were to monitor all schools to ensure that they followed the directive, it said.
