As we all know that nearly at the end of February alarm bell began to sound on growing spread of Covid-19. And soon we all landed up in lockdown situation which led to close down all the schools, colleges and other educational institutions impacting almost a million of students across the world.

Taking this situation into consideration, we at Acharya Shree Vijay Vallabh School didn’t let this time go off for our children and continued the curriculum with same enthusiasm and fun by giving children virtual learning platform. This platform included social medias such as zoom application, WhatsApp and YouTube too.

Virtual teaching learning session on zoom were started, where our teachers made small groups of students through which children interacted enthusiastically. Timetable was made according to the classes focusing on the academics as well as the developmental skills of the children.

Different kinds of worksheets, activities and videos were sent on the WhatsApp group to which parents responded well. All the children were very happy and excited while doing those activities and worksheets. Feedback of every activity was taken in form of videos and photographs.

Till date we have been continuing with this type of teaching learning process. As we know the situation is getting more critical day by day which is affecting our children’s education the most. Considering this we have also started with the new academic year for our children. As we believe that learning should never stop in situation. We are so proud to say that we all together have made this situation a positive one for our parents and children, thus allowing them to learn more.
