Many school principals in Delhi have welcomed the recent decision of the government to reopen the schools for students of classes 10 and 12 after nearly 10 months, as it will give the students a chance to prepare better for the upcoming board exams.

Alka Kapur, Principal, Modern Public School, Shalimar Bagh, has said that this decision will help students with their studies for the board exams. The schools will also take a number of precautions to maintain a Covid-19 safe environment for the students, she said.

"At a time, only a certain number of students would be present in the class which would allow the school authorities to easily maintain proper physical distancing among the students and further reduce the chances of infection getting spread," she said, as per PTI reports.

The government of Delhi has allowed the reopening of schools in the national capital for students of classes 10 and 12 from January 18, outside Covid-19 containment zones. However, it made clear that physical attendance is not compulsory and students will attend schools only with the consent of parents.

The schools in Delhi are reopening from January 18 after being shut down for nearly 10 months to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, and they have been instructed by the Directorate of Education (DoE) to follow all Covid-19 guidelines when classroom studies resume on Monday.

According to Priyanka Barara, Principal, MRG School, Rohini, while the government has made it optional for parents to send their wards to school, it is recommended that they come for better board exam preparations.

"The decision to reopen the schools comes around just the right time when vaccination drive has been started around India. These announcements reflect the forthcoming positive times,“ Barara said, as per PTI reports.

“It is not a compulsion stated by the Delhi government, but as a principal my recommendation to parents would be to send their wards to school for better board preparations and also to break the mundane cycle of remote learning,” the school principal further added.

"We will be ensuring complete safety protocols in our campus and would maintain social distancing at all times, with mandatory temperature checks. This is a crucial time for students preparing for boards, so detailed and classroom learning would be a big support to their exam preparations,” Barara said.
