The first academic year at Chaman Bhartiya school was completely held online. We are now at the end of the second academic year, a hybrid year which was a mix of online & offline periods. Even in the offline periods, we had given parents the choice to opt for an online option as there were several COVID-19 restrictions. Now, I look forward to the third academic year, which will be completely conducted offline. In the academic year 2022-23, we will not be offering the online learning option until & unless the government makes it mandatory for schools.
