Air Quality another Concern as Children Return to School

As more schools in Delhi reopen for in-person classes after the Diwali break, they will have to contend with hazardous pollution levels in the city, a concern schools said took a backseat as Covid-mitigation measures became their primary focus.

 

Most heads of school said they will limit outdoor physical activity till the air quality improves. For the first few days after reopening, the school will focus on interactive sessions with students on a range of topics, including the Covid-19 pandemic and climate change.
Government schools also said they will keep physical activities to a minimum.

 

AK Jha, principal of the Government Co-ed Sarvodaya Vidyalaya, Rohini, said that while pollution was prevalent, it may not majorly impact attendance this year.

 

“I think children will continue to visit school, especially at a time when classes have resumed after a long gap,” said Jha.

 

He said that students had been directed to wear full-sleeved shirts and consume ‘amla’ every day. “Every year, I advise children to consume amla, so that they can stay healthy as pollution levels peak,” said Jha.
