West Bengal education department has decided to launch a novel initiative called ‘Paray Sikshalay’ (neighbourhood school) to bring students back to schools during the pandemic.

Under this initiative, primary and pre-primary students of state-run schools will be given lessons in open spaces. According to an official statement, this new initiative will help get students back to an offline teaching environment and the open air will ensure they stay safe from sitting too close in a class and catching infections.
