Parents, students welcome change in school timings
Srinagar: The government’s decision to change school timings within and outside the Municipal limits of Srinagar is being welcomed by school-going children, and their parents amidst.
Welcoming the move, the parents said that given the early morning chill here, it is better that the authorities have changed the timings.
