Baramulla: In a bid to help students amid COVID-19 pandemic, a teacher from a government school in Uri here in north Kashmir has created a school website and an android application as well.
Hailing from Chandanwari village of Uri, Aijaz Sheikh has created the website for his school, Government Higher Secondary Nambla Uri. Sheikh is a lecturer in IT department of the same school.
The feat is significant as the teacher has worked on limited 2G internet services available in Kashmir to create the entire website and then the android application.
“This should have taken me just 15 days, but it took me around 3 months to get it done for the betterment of the students of my school and the staffers there,” Aijaz Sheikh was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.
“I along with other teachers decided to work on our school website following which we discussed it with our higher authorities. When the COVID-19 classes started, we also planned how we would start online classes for the students,” Sheikh added.
The IT teacher also said that the students need not visit the school from Monday to Saturday.
“The students of lower classes will get early exposure to information technology. The school website is addressed as http://www.ghssnambla.in and the android application is named as https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ghss nambla.ourapp,” said Sheikh.
“Our website has a lot of sections including the admission section. Now students can apply for the admission online. We also have a result section on the website,” he added.
