Kerala education department prohibits summer classes, emphasises importance of student well-being

May 5, 2023

In an effort to give students a much-needed break from the rigorous academic routine, the Kerala Department of Education has issued an order prohibiting all summer classes in schools across the state. The decision was made to ensure that students have a stress-free summer and can engage in activities that promote their physical and mental well-being.

The Education Department has warned that stern action will be taken against schools that violate the order and continue to conduct summer classes. The schools may face the revocation of their recognition or be fined as per the provisions of the Kerala Education Act.

The order has been issued after the Education Department received several complaints from parents and students about schools conducting summer classes. The students had expressed their distress and frustration over not being able to enjoy their summer vacation and engage in activities they enjoy due to the pressure of attending summer classes.

The Education Department has stated that summer vacations are an essential part of a student’s academic year and should not be compromised. The summer break provides an opportunity for students to pursue their hobbies and interests, spend time with their family, and engage in other extracurricular activities that promote their overall development.

The department has also emphasized the importance of physical and mental well-being, especially during these difficult times of the pandemic. The department has encouraged students to engage in physical activities, such as sports, yoga, and other forms of exercise, to maintain their physical health. Students are also encouraged to engage in activities that promote their mental well-being, such as meditation, reading, and spending quality time with their family and friends.

The Education Department has requested parents to ensure that their children do not attend any summer classes and to report any violations of the order to the department. The department has assured parents that they will take strict action against any school that violates the order.

In conclusion, the order issued by the Kerala Education Department to prohibit summer classes in schools is a welcome move towards ensuring that students have a stress-free summer vacation. The department has emphasized the importance of physical and mental well-being and encouraged students to engage in activities that promote their overall development. Parents are urged to cooperate with the department and ensure that their children do not attend any summer classes. The department has also warned schools of stern action in case of violation of the order.
