Manish Sisodia talks with kids as Delhi Schools reopen for Classes 9 to 12.

Schools in Delhi resumed for grades 9 to 12 on Monday after being closed in December due to an upsurge of COVID-19 cases. The latest guidelines issued by the Delhi Disaster Management Authority (DDMA). There is no cap of 50% student strength. So as to ensure COVID-appropriate behaviour.”

Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi and Education Minister, met with pupils at Delhi’s Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya today.

Online lessons are just options. We were excitedly awaiting the return of lessons. I chatted with kids today, and they agree that lessons are better in institutions that are not online.

Delhi Schools will be going to reopen according to DDMA guidelines:

“COVID has an impact on the education of a whole generation. I am hopeful that the children will be able to make up for the learning loss caused by COVID limitations “Sisodia said.

Sisodia stated that the schools closely adhere to the COVID norms of face masks and social separation. “Offline lessons for Nursery to Class 8 will begin on February 14,” Sisodia stated.

A student at Delhi’s Sarvodaya Kanya Vidyalaya told ANI, “Although my parents are somewhat religious, they sent me to school since there is a loss of learning in the online style of instruction. Teachers can also teach well in offline classrooms.”

Our family was likewise fine with us going to school.” According to her, learning is better in the offline style of education since students may consult with professors face to face. The DDMA has also placed a premium on the blended/hybrid form of teaching-learning (online & offline).

Students also come in large numbers to the Mayo International School in Patparganj, Delhi. “One to one connection of children and instructors is really vital for better learning,” stated a parent at Mayo International School.

According to a Mayo International School student, “The reopening of the school has both positive and negative implications. Unfortunately, the COVID is still active, and there is a potential that it will increase again. It’s a positive thing because physical classrooms have less distractions than online programs. The forms would be clearer for students taking board examinations, in particular, because teachers would prepare them for it.”
