After eight months of staying closed, students will finally get to see their classrooms amid strict COVID-19 safety protocol
Goa schools for classes 10 and 12 have reopened after eight months and all the schools have been ordered to follow the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that include proper wearing of masks, sanitizing, thermal screening and social distancing in the school premises.
Chief Minister Pramod Sawant had announced on November 4 that every safety regulation shall be maintained by the institutions. A senior official commented that the classrooms are being thoroughly sanitised for the safety of the students and teachers. The education department had also consulted the concerned stakeholders before taking the final decision of reopening the schools for higher classes.
While entering the school premises, a thermal screening and hand sanitisation have been made mandatory. Since the number of students in each class is now restricted, sessions have to be repeated and teachers will now have to teach one lesson at least five times.
With this, the Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education (GBSHSE) has announced that the syllabus would be reduced by 30 per cent for the current academic year.
