Patiala, July 25

Government schools, which were shut due to the second wave of Covid, will now reopen tomorrow.

Students from Class X to XII have been allowed to attend the school with Covid protocol in place. Preparations in this regard have been done in 109 secondary and 94 high schools of the district.

District Education Officer (Secondary) Harinder Kaur said the school heads had been asked to follow the instructions issued by the Punjab Government and directions had also been issued to all to take mandatory precautions to prevent Covid-19.

All high and senior secondary schools in the district were sanitised and cleaned, she added.

Rajneesh Kumar, Principal, Government Senior Secondary School, Philkhana, said he had already directed the students to wear a mask while coming to the school, to keep their hands sanitised and maintain the required distance. Duties of the staff have been assigned for compliance.

Lalit Singla, Headmaster, Government High School, Ranbirpura, said teachers and students were waiting for schools to reopen. “There is a lot of enthusiasm among teachers and students in this regard. All preparations have been made in the schools for compliance with Covid-19 rules,” said Lalit Singla

Deepak Singh, a father of two students, said although the Education Department had made efforts to provide online education through TV and mobile during the pandemic, children were more interested in going to schools.

Husandeep Kaur, a student of Government Senior Secondary School, Chappar, says: “She has been waiting for a long time to start school because some of the things that students learn in school cannot be learned online.”
