Most city schools where Saraswati Puja is part of the annual calendar will welcome the Goddess of learning on their campuses on Tuesday, albeit with precautions to keep Covid at bay. In many schools, the new normal is part of the theme, too. Some will even livestream the puja from campus so that all students can participate.
While the primary and middle schools, up to Class VIII, have been kept out of the puja this time, students of classes IX-XII have been divided in small groups and given different responsibilities following puja rosters so that arrangements progress without crowding. Even on the final day, children will be coming in rotation and phased pushpanjali has been organized for small groups. The traditional distribution and throwing of flowers will not take place however.
Almost all priests will be speaking on microphones so that those at a distance can hear clearly. Teachers have been given special duty to ensure that all Covid protocols are maintained while the puja is organized.

Hare School, Hindu School, Jadavpur Vidyapith, N K Paul School, Dhakuria and DPS Ruby Park are some of the schools where puja preparations are on.

Class XI boys are in charge of the puja at Hindu School. The students had been planning with teachers in the virtual mode since January, hoping that the school would re-start physical classes. Now that it has, those plans have smoothly been executed.

“All students till Class VIII have been told to download an app on which they can participate virtually. Students of classes IX to XII have been given different time slots to come in,” said principal Shubhro-jit Dutta.

At Hare School, too, preparations are similarly on. Students have been taking turns to draw the alpana on campus.

At Jadavpur Vidyapith, Class XII students like Arnab Manna, Swapnanil Pal, Anirban Mandal and Srijita Purkait, and Ahana Banerjee of Class XI, are taking the lead in bringing to life the theme of “Shikshar Nabarupayan”. “It is all about how online learning saved the day for all school students,” explained teacher Somsuvra Dasgupta, who is coordinating with the students.

Only the students’ council will be physically participating at the DPS Ruby Park puja, along with teachers and the administration. The others will watch virtually.

“There will be no cut fruits on offer and packed bhog will be given to everyone,” said vice-principal Indrani Chattopadhyay.
