During the event, the President had a dialogue with several students from Sudimara elementary school in Cilongok subdistrict, Banyumas regency, Central Java province.
The President told the children that although the covid-19 pandemic has prevented them from going to school, they must remain motivated to learn outside school.
"Amid the pandemic, I am aware that children are at home most of the time. They do not go to school. However, children must stay motivated in learning. They must continue to learn outside school," said the President, as quoted by the Cabinet Secretariat's website.
The President said the Government has previously planned to reopen in-school learning this month
Due to a spike in covid-19 active cases, the plan has to be postponed until the situation improves.
If the coronavirus pandemic is getting better and the number of active cases has reduced, the government plans to reopen in-school learning.
