Jalandhar, October 28
Almost 10 days have passed, but the attendance of students in the government schools remain at 15 per cent, which shows that a majority of the parents have not given the consent to send their wards to schools. There are students, who usually take part in sports activities, too have not returned to sports fields. Though fitness activities are being held in a few schools by maintaining proper social distancing, most students are learning the sports technique online.
Sudhir Kumar, a physical education teacher at Government Senior Secondary School (Girls), Nehru Garden, said, “Only four-five students are coming to school and he was only asking them to do fitness-related activities. I give coaching in judo and the sport requires physical contact which I cannot approve of looking at the situation, so the physical activity is what I am restricting to for now,” he said.
District Education Officer (Secondary) Harinderpal Singh said for now there could be no sports activities in the schools. “Already the strength is very poor. That could only be possible if the schools will open properly and more students will start coming,” the DEO said. — TNS
