Due to Covid-19 pandemic and temporary closure of educational institutions, the student community has been going through several challenges. Though the process of teaching learning has shifted from physical to digital mode, there are yet many students who are unable to access such technology. Therefore, VKV Tumpreng initiated the programme 'Umang' to reach out to the students during the lockdown following all the Covid-19 protocols. The programme started on 5th October 2020 and continued till 7thDecember2020. The teachers of the school went to different places in groups and conducted the session 'Umang'. The activities included were: introduction of students and teachers, sharing of experience of the lockdown phase including participation in household chores by students, stories, games, songs and model classes by the teachers.The initiative not only benefited the students in their studies but also kept them in close contact with their teachers and helped them to come out of the fear ofCovid-19.
