Hanoi (VNA) - Around 600,000 preschool students in all 30 urban and outlying districts and townships of Hanoi returned to school on April 13 after a year of online instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is the last group of students in the capital city to resume in-person learning. 

Examining schools on April 13 morning, Director of the municipal Department of Education and Training Tran The Cuong applauded schools and local authorities for preparations to welcome the students back and asked schools to continue to stay vigilant against COVID-19.

Schools need to ensure safety for students, strictly abide by COVID-19 prevention and control regulations and build education activities in line with real conditions, he said.

Teacher Vu Ngoc Du, Principal of Anh Sao Kindergarten in Cau Giay district, said apart from preparing facilities to welcome back the students, the school paid special attention to measures to ensure safety for the students. More than 500 students returned to school on April 13, equivalent to 92 percent.

Nguyen Ngoc Anh, a mother of a two-year-old student in Ha Dong district, said this is the first time her daughter had gone to school so she was very excited.  

Hanoi is the last locality among 63 provinces and cities nationwide to allow kindergartens to resume in-person learning./.
