Jamshedpur, March 28: After a gap of nearly two years, Narbheram Hansraj English School (NHES) was again abuzz with children’s voices on Monday, March 23 as offline classes restarted maintaining Covid-19 restrictions.
The school was closed down in March 2020 as a precautionary measure against COVID-19.
Students turned up in large numbers and the school authorities tried to adhere to all COVID-19 protocols.
NHES saw the return of most of its students to their alma mater on Monday.
The school Principal, Paramita Roy Chaudhary, overwhelmed at the sight of the students, was at the gate to receive them. The President of the School Management Committee, Nakul Kamani, was also glad to hear the usual hubbub of daily school routine.
Realizing the effects of 2 long years of social distancing and leading an almost secluded life, the school has arranged welcome classes for students of Std 1 to 7.These classes are being held for a week by way of recapitulating what was taught online and setting the tone for the year ahead.
“It was a welcome sight to see the students walking into the school with glowing smiles and expectant looks. Teachers are engaging the students in different activities to arouse their interest in gaining knowledge and adjusting to the school environment. These welcome classes have been carefully planned out to take care of the mental, physical and social health of the students, and to create a happy atmosphere to make the teaching learning process more effective,” said the Principal.
She informed that students are enjoying activities like story- telling sessions, puppet shows, quizzes, drawing and experimenting in subjects like Science, English, Maths, E.V.S, Social Studies and Computer Studies. This new initiative is being appreciated by parents.
