KOLKATA: A day after the state government asked schools to extend their summer vacation, two city schools — La Martiniere and Lakshmipat Singhania Academy — held physical classes on Tuesday but announced a switch to online from Wednesday. Most other schools affiliated to CISCE and CBSE boards suspended physical classes from Tuesday and will shift to online classes till at least June 26, the date till which the state government extended summer vacation in view of the weather.
While all Madhyamik and higher secondary schools have no option but to shut down on account of the state education department directive, schools of other boards have decided to hold full-fledged online classes to ensure that the syllabi for various classes get completed on time. Schools said they have already lost nearly a fortnight due to the early announcement of summer vacation in May.
Lakshmipat Singhania Academy reopened after the summer break on Monday. Students attended offline classes on Tuesday and authorities have decided to switch to online mode after receiving the government notification on Monday. La Martiniere Boys’ and Girls’ Schools had offline classes on Tuesday but will move to the online mode from Wednesday.
Calcutta Boys’ School had started classes from June 8 in a hybrid mode and most classes had gradually been shifted to the physical mode. The school has now shifted all classes to the online mode till June 26. “We have decided to switch to online mode due to the uncomfortable weather and the government has issued a notice also,” said Raja Mcgee, principal.
Junior section classes of South Point School will resume from Wednesday in an online mode. “Pursuant to notification of the state government regarding summer vacations, the school shall be conducting classes in the online mode only with effect from Wednesday, June 15, 2022 up to Friday, June 24, 2022,” the notice said.
Birla High School has not changed its decision to conduct offline classes for X and XII. DPS Newtown has started offline classes after summer break. St Xavier’s school has started online classes which they will continue till June 26.
Some private schools that follow state board’s syllabus, like Scottish Church Collegiate School and The BSS School, have been conducting online classes. Even a few government schools like Sakhawat Memorial School plan to start online classes.
Most of the schools were preparing for exams when the notice was issued, which may affect mid-term or summative exams. CBSE schools like DPS Ruby Park have decided to conduct exams in physical mode in June-end after they reopen on June 27. State-aided schools usually have their first summative exam in April. This year, due to the HS, most had planned to conduct exams in May which may now be pushed to July.
