That's no rumour; the trial run is set to begin on 7 April in about 100 state schools (year 4 to year 12) in Jakarta.I had heard a rumor last week that it was the National schools that were going to start face to face classes first which would put pressure on International and National Plus schools to do the same.
Can these protocols be seen somewhere? I would think normally all schools or institutions should have to follow the same protocols all over the country. All I can say is that I doubt it is possible hereNumerous protocols that have to be followed. It's far from any sort of normal.
I read something yesterday about the plan being for most schools to return for July - Watch this space
I don't think there are any boarding schools that teach in English in Jakarta. Just the islamic madrasahs. You should choose a school then try to live close.Hi, I'm new on this forum and (very soon) to Indonesia!
On a separate note, can anyone please assist with names of good Private Boarding schools (in and near Jakarta) offering Cambridge Curriculum? The ones I'm coming across are mostly Islamic boarding schools. It's for my child needs to get admitted into Grade 8 in July. Thanks much in advance.
I can only find it in the Indonesian media, but this link is fairly comprehensive. I fully expect reopening to be a disaster. I hope I'm wrong, but I don't have much hope.Can these protocols be seen somewhere? I would think normally all schools or institutions should have to follow the same protocols all over the country.

It seems that schools—especially the more well-to-do ones—are setting their own guidelines which are more stringent than what has come from the government.
Oh damn—I put the wrong link in my original post! I meant to use this one, which is up to date and also states that all teachers and students must be vaccinated before they are allowed to return to in-person learning. I've heard from some people I know who teach that they've been told they won't have a job unless they get a jab. About the students being required to do so, that's a new one for me.If it is a disaster or not will depend on the school. I think the International schools will have a good plan in place. After that, it will be hit or miss.
Based on the article, even though the article is from last year, the same question that was asked almost a year ago remains, what if a teacher is in a red zone? Are they allowed to come into a green zone to work or will they be working from home?
The size of the class and social distancing is going to cause a nightmare for schools especially ones where there are 25+ students per class and old school buildings.
Also, how likely is this to be enforced? Yes they do raids in certain areas of Jakarta at night for places violating the 'curfew', but with so many schools, I don't see how they can do it.
Do you have any literature proving virol-oxy does any of this stuff? I ask because I just went to their website and it seems a bit unprofessional for a German tech company.Hi Guys:
We can definitely minimize Covid-19 risk by using sanitizer capable of covering surfaces with self-sanitizing coating. Virol-Oxy is a good example of such sanitizer. Virol-Oxy is made in Germany and capable of providing extended protection against virus, bacteria and fungi with only one spray. It's also safer than other conventional disinfectant/sanitizer because it's not flammable and doesn't cause skin irritation. Our kids are also using Virol-Oxy on their hands whenever we go out. I'm currently spraying this at our offices on weekly basis. The cost is minimal because a litre Virol-Oxy cost as low as Rp12.500 or US$0.86. This is way more affordable and safer than other disinfectant/sanitisers sold in the market. So it's worth looking into it because we have been using this since early 2021.
UVC air purification system can also be combined with such advanced sanitizer to further minimize Covid-19 risk. I read in a literature that if air in a room can be disinfected at least 5 times per hour, the risk of Covid-19 becomes very low. But the question is, will international schools invest in such equipment to reduce Covid-19 risk.
