The Delhi government schools have decided to provide story kits for students of classes 3 to 5 since the schools are closed and the children are not being able to use their library. For 99 Sarvodaya Vidyalayas, the kit has been prepared by Room to Read which has been working with the schools to set up libraries.
A circular sent to the Delhi government schools said that students have not been able to get books issued from their library during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been felt that the students will be benefitted from some additional support material.
The story kit for the students has a pack of 10 pencils, a story worksheet book, a carry folder, and two sets of colors.
The heads of Delhi government schools have been asked to prepare a schedule to facilitate the distribution of these kits. Instructions have been given to them to form class-wise time slots spanning over 2-3 days that should be framed in such a way that there should not be any crowding in the school on any day. The information about the slots should be given to the students well in advance.
All the COVID-19 norms have been asked to be followed by the schools when the students are called to collect their kits. The circular stated that the class teachers must distribute story kits to the students of classes 3 to 5 with not more than 10 parents being allowed to enter into a classroom at a time.
