HYDERABAD: Often facing flak for upping fees round the year, several schools in Hyderabad — in a unique gesture — have offered fee waivers to students who have lost one or both parents to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Many have got full fee waiver till the completion of intermediate, too.
After losing her husband, who was a scientist at the Indian Institute of Chemical Technology, to Covid-19 in August last year, Sunitha Bathula was concerned about the education of her two sons.
“I don’t have any employment and I even lost my parents in the last one year. Worried about who would pay the fees for my sons, I reached out to the Hyderabad Public School (HPS), Ramanthapur administration, who readily waived off Rs 1.20 lakh in fee and informed me that they’d take care of the education of my two sons,” said Bathula, who has one son is Class 9 and another one in Class 1.
The HPS, Ramanthapur has extended such relief to eight other students who lost their parents in the past one year. The situation was much the same for A Anwitha, a Class 5 student of Pallavi Model School.
After her family paid Rs 23 lakh towards hospital bills for both her mother and her father for Covid-19 treatment, it was a struggle to pay school fees for the academic year 2020-21.
