RELYING ON SCHOOLS’ FEEDBACK, PUNJAB OPENS ITS SCHOOLS W.E.F. JANUARY-7,2020.
Punjab Government Schools and their teachers have always met every challenge-be it the influx of thousands new students opting for admission in Government schools or the continuation of studies /completion of syllabus for children online in this difficult Covid times era.
The current announcement will see the buzz of general activity in Punjab when schools open.
As Covid scare is still looming, it is imperative that government functionaries should be fully prepared and motivated to meet this challenge for sake of safety of children and their families. Health Department,the Deputy Commissioners, SDMs, BDPOs and Education department’s own senior functionaries’ sincere efforts are required to provide all support to school heads. Parents will certainly not relish any complacency on the part of administration for the safety of children .
Let us all too help administration in their effort for smooth working of schools after a long time .
