Saniya, a class 8th student of a private school in Srinagar was excited to join her school for routine academic activities after a gap of over two years.
The level of excitement was such that she could not sleep during the preceding night, as she was eager to join her peer group at school.
Despite the excitement, the concerns surrounding COVID-19 were weighing heavy in her mind like other students who joined their respective schools from Wednesday.
“I did not attend my school for the last two years so I am happy today to join my school after such a long gap.
I was so excited that I could not sleep for the preceding night as I was eager to meet my friends,” Saniya told Greater Kashmir.
She said the students are taking proper care of COVID-19 SoPs, wearing a face mask and sanitising hands besides ensuring physical distance in class room and school premises.
As per the government orders, all the government and private schools across Kashmir resumed class work on Wednesday for students post over two month long winter vacations. Like Saniya, other students were joyous and were seen cherishing the moment while entering their school premises.
“I am excited to join school for routine class work after more than two year and it is really a good moment for me. I was ready to join schools and made all preparations from the last five days,” said Malika, a class 7th student.—KMS
