The Scindia School, Gwalior is preparing to open later this month (June 2020). The school is putting processes in place that will ensure the complete safety of children when they return, including aspects like social distancing through multiple measures, regular check-ups, and reduced external entry to the campus among others. In a bid to ease the financial burden on the parents, the school has announced a reduction in the school fees for the school year from Rs. Seven lakh fifty thousand to Rs. Six lakh fifty thousand per annum.
In a letter addressed to the parents Jyotiraditya Scindia, President Scindia Education Society, said, “The school had to plan and execute a series of actions in March to do the right thing for the safety of our children and to meet government guidelines as the COVID-19 pandemic unleashed its fury. In evolving an urgent response, two objectives were prime to our thinking, the safety of our children and the preservation of our educational ethos. On-line classes have begun and their intensity in quality and effectiveness will see continuous improvement”
Adding that the extraordinary nature of this time is unmatched in our experience and is challenging us in unprecedented ways, he wrote it is also the time when character and values distinguish themselves. “Institutions and fraternities that imbibe the right upbringing cope and respond in ways that set them apart.”
