The Delhi government has opened the schools for 10 th and 12 th class students as their board exams are nearing.
The decision has been primarily taken with full Covid 19 protocols, due to the arrival of Covid 19 vaccines but the nursery classes and classes till 9 th standards have been withheld for now subject to future decisions. There won’t be any nursery admissions this year revealed the latest news.
Talking to media Delhi’s deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia who’d visited several government schools on the first day of opening of 10 th n 12 classes after several several months of the ongoing pandemic said that this initiative was necessary because boards’ exams are near and the online classes were not serving the credible purpose of the students for long.
He said our students have to be moulded as future doctors, engineers, deputy collectors n better citizens of the country and opening of schools was inevitable.
He added that board exams require practicals and unless students are practically taught in labs they can’t perform adequately during their boards practical exams. Therefore it is not important what results they bring or what their performance in exams would be but their attending schools after such a protracted interval is in itself a challenging decision.
Meanwhile the chief minister of Delhi Arvind Kejrival said that watching the students studying again after a protracted period is a passionate moment for me. The schools have been opened today after a long time leaving behind difficult times. I hope that everything would normalise after some time and all the children would be able to meet their teachers and friends tweeted Kejrival.
Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia tweeted annexing photographs confabulating with students in school laboratory : Felt really good to meet children in schools after such a long time. They are still adjusting to be back in schools with safety norms but are extremely happy to meet their friends. Teachers are overjoyed to meet students saying it has filled an empty space in their lives tweeted Manish Sisodia. In an earlier tweet he said : Best wishes to the students of class 10 th and 12th who are going to attend their schools after ten months ( though it is only for limited purpose and with Covid protocols) But still…, I am glad that schools are opening in Delhi today he tweeted.
The deputy chief minister visited several government schools to encourage the teaching staff and students and confabulated with them in laboratories and was jubilant to find tremendous confidence and zeal in them to attend schools in order complete their course with high spirits and fair well in exams.
