Pekanbaru City PPKM Extended, Pekanbaru City Education Office Says Schools Cannot Open Face-to-Face During PPKM Level IV



Pekanbaru City

PEKANBARU – The extension of the implementation of Community Activity Restrictions (PPKM) level IV in Pekanbaru City means that face-to-face schooling cannot be held yet. The teaching and learning process will still be carried out online for the next 14 days.

Head of the Pekanbaru City Education Service (Disdik), Ismardi Ilyas, said that schools could not open during PPKM level IV. He appealed to teachers to provide easy methods for online learning.

“I urge teachers to provide a simple curriculum. “So don’t use K13 (2013 Curriculum),” said Ismardi via the Pekanbaru City Government’s official website, Tuesday (24/8/2021).

According to him, if the K13 curriculum is used in an online learning method, it is quite difficult for students to understand because the delivery of material is limited via virtual.

This makes it difficult to deliver material because students and teachers do not meet directly. Because of this online system, teachers often use Google Class Room applications and WhatsApp groups in delivering learning material.

“But it’s not communicative. “So use methods that are easy for students, there must be innovation in providing material so that it is easy for students to understand,” he concluded. (*)

Artificial Lake Riau – Pekanbaru – Artificial Lake, is a natural tourist attraction that is worth visiting if you go to Pekanbaru. The lake, which covers an area of ​​14 hectares, offers views of the forest and calm lake water.

“When PPKM was relaxed, people started to trade,” said Rina, a resident who lives around the natural tourist attraction, Saturday (11/9/2021).

One of the attractions of this lake, which is called Lake Kayangan, is in the afternoon. It can be seen that there are many visitors hunting for sunsets to fill their social media.

Hunting for sunset at the Artificial Lake which is located in Limbungan Village, Rumbai Pesisir District, Pekanbaru City, is very enjoyable.

The view of twilight stretches across the eastern horizon with a glimpse of orange before the sun descends to its bed. What is in the sky is also reflected like a mirror from the calm lake water. The atmosphere is really fun.

“I rarely come here, it turns out it’s fun too. “There were also quite a lot of visitors,” said Akmal, a Pekanbaru resident who also spent the evening at the Artificial Lake that afternoon.

From the center of Pekanbaru City to the Artificial Lake takes around 25 – 30 minutes by motorbike. This distance is shorter because travelers can now cross the Siak IV Bridge.

As the afternoon approaches, a number of community and visitor activities can be observed, in fact, we can also join in with their activities. These include fishing and enjoying a cup of warm coffee on the edge of the lake. (Red/ACR)

Collaborating with Unri, Riau Regional Police Encourages Acceleration of Campus Herd Immunity



Riau Regional Police Riau- Pekanbaru – Riau Regional Police are again distributing vaccines. This time, mass vaccination was held at the Unri campus, Panam Pekanbaru on Tuesday (14/9/2021) morning. A total of 2,400 vaccine doses were provided, targeting the community, students and the community around campus.

The mass vaccination on the Unri campus was attended directly by the Deputy Chief of the Riau Regional Police, Brigadier General Tabana Bangun Msi, accompanied by the main officials of the Riau Regional Police as well as the chancellor and the campus, taking the location at the Unri Panam Faculty of Social and Political Sciences. Since morning the vaccine participants have been present in an orderly manner and look enthusiastic, dominated by students.

Deputy Chief of Riau Regional Police, Brigadier General Tabana Bangun, said that this mass vaccination was a collaboration between the Regional Police and Unri. The police have also carried out similar things with other parties, with the aim of accelerating the achievement of vaccination targets to establish herd immunity, so that the spread of Covid-19 can be reduced.

“This is one of our joint efforts in dealing with Covid-19 in Riau, especially among the community, students and the community around the Unri campus. “We thank the community for holding this activity,” said the one-star general during his review.

Brigadier General Tabana Bangun emphasized that accelerating the provision of vaccines to the public, including students, aims to establish group immunity.

“We hope that this can be achieved in society. “Vaccination is also a collaboration between various groups, not just campuses,” he assured.

According to him, Covid-19 also has a big impact on the world of education, including universities where students cannot be active in the face-to-face teaching and learning process. Therefore, accelerating vaccination is of course very important to support learning on campus.

“The implementation of education, especially universities, is hampered, so vaccination needs to be carried out. It is hoped that it can form a herd community on campus. “So that face-to-face activities can run normally again,” said Brigadier General Tabana Bangun.

He believes that the acceleration of vaccination has had an impact in reducing the rate of spread of Covid-19, where in recent weeks the number of patients infected with Corona has decreased to below 100 per day.

“As of yesterday, in Riau it was already below 100. We are trying and continuing to pray, hopefully Riau can minimize the spread of Covid and activities will return to normal soon,” he hoped.

In line with that, Unri Chancellor Aras Mulyadi fully supports the acceleration of vaccines driven by the Riau Regional Police. Moreover, today there were 2,400 doses given to his party.

“We will finish administering the vaccine today. “Where 70 percent is for students and the other 30 percent is for teaching staff and some of the surrounding community,” he said.

“We really appreciate that one of the readiness for face-to-face learning is the percentage of vaccinations. “Currently, the percentage of vaccination rate at Unri with the number of teaching staff is already 75 percent, students 35 percent out of 35 thousand people,” continued Aras Mulyadi.
