Punjab to reopen schools from today for pre-primary levels. The state has already reopened schools for classes 10 to 12 from July 26 onwards. This was informed by state School Education Minister Vijay Inder Singla said on Sunday.
“Following the approval of Chief Minister Amarinder Singh in view of the present Covid situation, the Education Department is all set to reopen schools for all classes from August 2 onwards,” said Singla in an official statement here.
The minister said that the reopening of schools will play a major role to assess the learning of students as there were no offline classes conducted due to the covid pandemic situation since 2020. The schools conducted the classes virtually during these one and half years.
He added that reopening of schools will also provide a chance for students and teachers to collaborate and understand subjects in depth. There will be no loss of learning and conducting practical classes will help students to perform better.
He ensured that all education officers are fully vaccinated to conduct physical classes. Moreover, all COVID protocols will be maintained to keep students and teachers safe.
