Sting Newz Service/Press Release, Nadia: As the entire nation is stranded in the confines of the homes several schools have taken resort to virtual platforms to render academic support to the students. However a school is not merely the place for the academic development of the students, it is also centre for developing co-scholastic activities and a training ground in appreciating culture and heritage.
While several schools are still trying to find a way to start with these important aspects of the school life for the students, Krishnagar Public School, Nadia has found a unique way of bringing a sense of normalcy in the students’ life in this respect even amidst this pandemic lockdown maintaining Co-scholastic classes parallely with academics.
KPS had started with online classes from the 25th of March 2020 and gradually in 4 phases we implemented online classes right from Nursery to Class 12. The school wanted to move beyond to ensure holistic development, and hence they started evening Co-scholastic classes. They also acknowledged the difficulties that our parents were facing. In order to to reach out to the parents, touching their lives as well, helping them to make use of this time in a more fruitful manner by the school introduced Yoga and Spoken English sessions for the parents as well.
