Learning during Covid-19
Paru was excited that she was going to be promoted to grade five after her final exams in March. Her parents had promised to get her a new school bag in her favourite maroon colour for her new class. But this year turned out to be different, her excitement faded with the school closure right before the results of grade four were published. On March 19, Nepal officially closed all educational institutions to help contain the spread of Covid-19. A nationwide lockdown followed four days later.
