Srinagar 15 March (KNB): Classwork for lower primary students in Kashmir started on Monday after remaining suspended for a long period owing to the pandemic.
Almost a year-long pause in teaching at the schools came to an end when higher secondary classes were opened on Ist March, which followed the resumption in the classwork for upper primary (6th-8th) students on March 8.
However, the officials had earlier deferred the classwork for the lower primary (Ist – 5th) students for a week, which came to an end on Monday. The lower primary students were seen heading towards their schools for the first time after the pandemic’s permanent pause in teaching at the schools for almost a year.
Pertinently, the decision to postpone the classes of primary class students had come after the reporting of Covid19 positive cases from some schools in the valley after reopening institutions on March Ist for classes 9th to 12th. (KNB)
