UPP urges Bahrain Indian School to follow CBSE instructions
Manama: The United Parents Panel, in a press statement, urged The Indian School, Bahrain to follow the latest instructions by Central Board of Secondary Education and make arrangements for academic year 2020-21. In the wake of COVID-19 outbreak, CBSE had rearranged the curriculum for Class 6 to Class 12 and shortened the syllabus.
CBSE has instructed the schools in India to prepare for school reopening by July or August if COVID threat subsides. Teachers are interacted to train students in extracurricular activities and creative aspects in the meantime. If only the rest of 2020 is utilized to the best, lessons can be completed and students can be prepared for exams in a way an academic year is not lost, UPP reminded.
The selected committee off parents’ representatives is responsible to stand by parents in this time of crisis and to ask the school management to drop all other fees other than tuition fee. However, instead of this, the present committee cheated parents by boasting about the fee concession given to economically backward students like all the previous committee had been doing for the past 25 years, UPP alleged.
The committee has to clarify how many students were given fee waiver. This had been brought to the notice of office bearer repeatedly, but received no information, UPP further said in the press release.
