The headmistress of the school, Rubi Puthotta, says, “Like every year, to mark Kalvi Valarchi Naal and former chief minister of Tamilnadu K. Kamarajar’s birthday today (July 15), we had a small celebration at school wherein his photo was garlanded and prayers were said. The students of class XII, who had received laptops from the government last year, were asked to bring them to school today. The lessons for all the subjects and the software needed to access these lessons were uploaded into their laptops”.
She adds that the social distancing norms as mentioned by the government were followed strictly. The students were also instructed to come to school with masks.
At St. Anthony’s Girls School at Madha Church Road, Mandavelipakkam too, the girls of classes X and XII, dressed in crisp uniforms and wearing masks, were seen leaving the campus a little after noon with their text-books and notebooks.
