Schools and colleges to reopen from Nov 15 in West Bengal, says Mamta Banerjee

Schools reopen in Karnataka

West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee announced on Monday that they might think of reopening schools and colleges of the state for physics classes from November 15. Currently, only students in grades 9 to 12 can attend schools.

Banerjee, after attending an administrative review meeting at Uttar Kanya in Siliguri, asked chief secretary HK Dwivedi to ensure proper cleaning and sanitisation of educational in institutions before they reopen.

The West Bengal government earlier in September said that they might allow schools and colleges to reopen in the state after the festive season, provided the cases of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) don’t see a spurt.

Educational institutes across the state remained shut for in-campus classes since the nationwide lockdown was announced in March 2020, to check the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in India.

The West Bengal, meanwhile, asked all the state government-run and aided schools to prepare for the reopening next month. According to reports, the secondary and higher secondary schools have been asked to wrap up the process of repairing and sanitising the classrooms by the end of October.

As schools reopen, it’s important that precautions are taken both inside and outside the classroom to prevent the spread of COVID-19. A key lesson learned during the pandemic is the important role teachers play in ensuring that learning continues. As schools reopen, a lot will depend on teachers to ensure that children will be able to continue their education in a safe and healthy environment; and make up for knowledge and skills that may have been lost.
