Schools in the national capital reopened on Monday nearly after 10 months. They have been shut since March 2020 in view of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Classes have resumed for students in standards 10 and 12 in view of board exams, pre-board examinations, practical and project work.
Deputy chief minister and education minister Manish Sisodia said that he is glad that the schools are opening in Delhi today.
“Best wishes to the students of class 10&12th who are going to visit their school today after 10 months… (though it’s only for limited purpose and with covid protocols..) But still… I am glad that schools are opening in Delhi today,” Sisodia tweeted.
The Delhi government allowed all schools outside containment zones to resume functioning. The government has, however, requested schools to call children only after the consent of their parents.
