Some schools in Kolkata may call both IX and XI pupils, some only of the XI class | Calcutta News



KOLKATA: Faced with the double challenge of starting physical classes for high school students from November 16 and conducting offline board exams for grades X and XII in a semester format, schools in the city are evaluating options of recalling all pupils of classes IX and XI to school or by calling only class XI students for the time being.
Some schools are only considering practical lessons at this time.
Schools are making plans keeping in mind that all students in grades X and XII will need to come to school for their offline exams from November 22 (for ICSE and ISC) and November 29 (for CBSE) . These students, as well as those in Classes IX and XI, may result in a higher student load on exam days.
St Xavier’s Collegiate School principal, Mr. Thamacin Arulappan, said: “We are in no rush to start physical classes for all students on November 16th. We can call class XI students for practical lessons since we also have board exams. At the moment, students are taking online courses and they prefer to continue in this mode. ”
Devi Kar, Principal of Modern High School, said: “We’re not going to call all the upper grades just yet. We have board exams starting November 22. Classes IX and XI may not be called up for physical classes immediately. But we are still discussing it and will inform the students after Diwali. ”
Anjana Saha, Director of Mahadevi Birla World Academy, said: “Our priority is to conduct offline counseling exams smoothly. Thus, from November 16, we are not asking class IX students to join physical classes. Class XI will be called on the days between board exams – 9 am to 11:30 am. ”
Heritage School will be calling students starting November 16 and a staggered schedule will be there. There will be 15-20 minutes of buffer time between entering two groups. Principal Seema Sapru said: “The internal exams for classes IX and XI will take place at the end of November, when students in classes X and XII take the board exams. Students taking the jury exams will be seated in a separate building and will use a separate door. The pupils of classes IX and XI will take the internal examinations in another building ”.
South Point School administrator Krishna Damani said, “We are still working on the details of how many students to call and how.
The Shri Shikshayatan School Authority has a staggered schedule for the entry and exit of students who will attend physical classes and those who will take board exams.
Supriyo Dhar, secretary of La Martinière, said: “The plans to reopen are complete. We will follow government notifications for entry and exit. Our classes usually start at 8 a.m. A very small number of students will be attending the physical classes, so we don’t expect a large gathering at the main gates. ”
DPS Ruby Park has specified two shifts starting November 16. The first will be from 7:15 a.m. to 11:05 a.m. and the second from 12:05 p.m. to 3:55 p.m., said manager Joyoti Chaudhuri.
