KOLKATA: When students in grades IX through XII enter school on Tuesday, they will find themselves in a very different classroom routine than they have been used to all these years. Tiffin’s time will not be a class break but another time under the watchful eye of the teacher. There will be no games or physical training period. Even the scope of an arts and crafts class is limited. The school, for the time being, will focus on core subjects and studies.
On the eve of resuming full-fledged studies in the upper classes, school leaders who will begin their activities from Tuesday said students will be given a Covid routine.
The new routine, principals said, will focus on core subjects: languages, physical sciences, life sciences, social sciences and mathematics.

It will be the end of a long wait for thousands of students. All Covid safety protocols must be followed so that there is no setback and all other school and college students, who will be attending classes from their homes, can return to campus soon.

At Don Bosco, Park Circus, classes IX and XI will come for 4 hours from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. There will be no recess. “Students will come to school for subjects based on explanations like math, science, etc. There will be no tiffin break,” said Don Bosco high school principal Bikash Mandal.
At the Calcutta Boys’ School, which resumes classes from November 22, there will be a five-minute break between two periods of 35 minutes each for disinfection. Principal Raja Mcgee said teachers will also teach students appropriate behavior in Covid.
DPS Ruby Park welcomes students from classes IX to XII between 8 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. The pupils of class X and class XII will go to school to dispel doubts and do practical work. Class IX has an arts-dance-music session that will be held according to the schedule. But games and refreshments for Class XI have been phased out for now. The Shri Shikshayatan School will continue to learn online for the time being.
