After gap of two years schools reopen in J&K students jubilant

Srinagar, Mar 02 (KNS): After a gap of over two years, schools in Kashmir and winter zones of Jammu reopened on Thursday, with students being jubilant to attend offline classes after a long gap.

According to details available with Kashmir News Service (KNS), schools and higher educational institutions reopened in Jammu in a phased manner from February 14, while degree colleges in Kashmir also reopened from February 15.

On Wednesday, schools resumed routine offline class work after a gap of over two years as the schools were closed due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020.

As per reports, students were seen jubilant to attend offline classes after a gap of more than two years and meet their colleagues, while resuming routine class work as well.

"It is good to be back to the classroom as we have been feeling a sort of bio-bubble fatigue due to the outbreak of Covid-19 as we were not able to go anywhere during most of the time in these two years. One bad thing about that was not attending routine class work in offline mode and not meeting our school friends, but it really feels good now to be back in schools," said Sadia, a class 8 student from north Kashmir.

She also said that they are hopeful that situation that arose due to Covid-19 across the world will soon be back to normal and they are able to attend their school on a regular basis.

Meanwhile, another student said that as Covid-19 is not gone yet, it is important for everyone including students and teachers to follow Covid Appropriate Behavior, issued by the government from time to time.

On Tuesday, Principal Secretary to the government School education department, Bishwajit Kumar Singh told KNS that children should attend schools from happily and without any fear as COVID cases are declining and requested students to follow all SOP’s during school hours. (KNS)
