The results of the survey showed that Grade5 and 6 parents of BBESlack of Microsoft skills which are very essential in assisting pupils in accomplishing learning tasks in online learning; and majority of parents need more skills to perform internet surfing which serve as an online platform in online distance learning. It is also revealed that the majority of parents have an access in internet connection and ICT equipment and gadgets despite that the geographical location is in urban place. From the results, teachers mustconduct a basic ICT training to equip parents with enough ICT competencies and further provide intensified parental support to their children.
