Globally, the reopening of schools has elicited mixed reactions, but governments have shown greenlight to the learning needs of children and the State of Kuwait has also joined the league of nations by responding positively to the educational needs of millions of children in its soil with strictest measures and stringent Covid-19 protocols to provide the learners with a no-fear environment that is conducive for learning. The historic day, which brought an end to the relentless wait for long 18 months for in-person learning witnessed a group of committed staff members dashing across the campus to make sure that everything humanly possible has been done to make learning hassle-free and joyous for their dear students. Nearly seven hundred students opted for on campus learning, of which 300 students reported on the twenty sixth of September to the school. The remaining 400 students will return to IES after the conclusion of their half-yearly examinations on the third of October 2021. The atmosphere suddenly lit up with the laughter of the students and even the walls of the school seemed to rejoice the homecoming of students just like trees exulting the arrival of spring after a frigid spell of winter. The chairman of Bhavans Middle East Mr. N.K. Ramachandran Menon and the principal of IES Mr. T. Premkumar addressed the students on the first day of reopening. Tiny tots of kindergarten, students of the primary wing, and the students of grades ten and twelve were given a befitting welcome and were ushered to the classrooms after having their body temperature recorded by teacher-volunteers. The walls and corridors of the school displayed posters and illustrations pertaining to the Covid-19 safety guidelines. Floor marking stickers paved way for zero befuddlement and easy tracking of the classrooms. The campus also showcased a number of touchless sanitizer dispensers and soap dispensers fitted in restrooms and corridors. State-of-the-art disinfectant foggers sanitized the building before and after the classes heralding that the safety of students is of paramount prominence at IES. Dedicated maids have been appointed for each corridor on all the floors of the building to ensure that the building is 100% hygienic and safe for the teachers and the taught. Disinfected school buses plied between schools and residential areas at 50% of their seating capacity to ward off any possible infection among the bus users. The grade ten and twelve students who chose to write their half-yearly examination in the school were provided with OMR sheets to answer the objective type questions and also to prepare them for the CBSE examinations that will be held in mid-November 2021. The hybrid hardware kit includes high-speed computers, full HD cameras, and high-sensitive microphones seamlessly integrated with Microsoft Teams software to teach students of grades 5 to 12 in hybrid mode.No wonder, Bhavans Kuwait keeps scaling greater heights in the realms of curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular activities day in, day out.
