According to the Principal Dr Sangeeta Srivastava, “Since the Online classes began in June 2020, few students were not attending the classes at all in std 10. Although there are several students in lower classes who due to many reasons cannot attend Virtual classes, they are using alternative means of learning using the apps like Diksha and free Textbooks provided by the Education Department, Whatsapp or YouTube.
Students of std 10 need to study with a point of view of Board exams too. After a month long detailed finding we discovered that many students either could not afford to buy a computer or smartphone, or had only one gadget at home to be shared by parents and siblings. We have been getting many donors for text books and notebooks but during this period of Covid 19, it is important that students attend online classes to cover up their syllabus.
The management of The Kandivli Education Society is always concerned about its students progress and on being informed few students who were not able to attend classes due to un affordability, they came out with this plan to give them the smart phones with 32 GB so that these students could study and join online classes and not affect their studies. President KES Sri Satish Dattani and Hon Secretary Sri MD Chandarana and other office bearers of KES always take active interest in student welfare. They took a step further by providing SIM card with Internet data for the year so that students do not suffer in this account.
