Schools in Kashmir reopen

Prepare for the greatest experience after eating a nutritious breakfast. You will travel over some of the highest passes in the world on your adventure, and you will be greeted by ever-changing vistas of the desolate landscape. Stop at the café on Khardung-La Pass, the highest all-season motorable road in the world, and take in the scenery; you'll feel as though you're on top of the world. Upon leaving Khardung-la, the terrain changes to a white sand desert as you approach the Nubra Valley, which is home to the Nubra Sand Dunes. Visit the Diskit Monastery, the oldest and biggest monastery in Ladakh, which also contains a sizable Buddha statue, if time permits.

Srinagar: Schools in Kashmir reopened on Monday after the winter break.

Director, Schools Education, Kashmir, Mohammad Younis Malik said that all arrangements have been put in place in this regard.

He said that the timing for the schools falling within Srinagar’s municipal limits will be 10:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. while in rest of Kashmir division timings will be 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

For the last six months most students in Kashmir have been missing school after the abrogation of Article 370 on August 5.

The government opened the schools in a phased manner days after the revocation of Article 370, but the move proved a non starter as most students did not attend school.

shutdown coupled with a communications blockade in Kashmir also hit education in the valley.

The attendance in schools slowly picked up since October but it was not satisfactory.

Now with schools reopening after the winter break of three months most parents are hopeful that there will be a resumption in normal education in Kashmir.

“We hope that there will be unhindered education for students now,” said Abdul Rahim at Batmalloo whose son studies in class 2. “Students have already lost a lot of time, they cannot afford to lose more.

Malik meanwhile said last year students proved their mettle and now it is our responsibility to extend our support to them and redouble efforts to get their syllabus completed well in time.

The field Officers were instructed to visit schools regularly to monitor the follow up of academic planner for timely accomplishment of set targets.
