Srinagar: School Education Department has launched a mission mode campaign of Enrolment Drive to enroll more and more children into government schools.
In this context from each education zone upto UT level, events are being organized for mass involvement of society. Besides stakeholders, common people and PRI’s participate in these programs.
Zone villgam Kupwara too is not far from this mass campaigning .School heads have roped for enrolment drive. Teachers from each locality go door to door to lure parents to get their wards admitted in Government Schools.
Middle School Sharkoot has organized a mega event of Enrolment Drive/mela to queue up the program. This School displays a unique picturesque, locating at the base of lush green forest and has a vast playground with adequate infrastructure. A computer lab to facilitate the students with new trends of technology is also placed at the disposal of students.
Recently Zonal Education Reform committee Kickstarted their compaign from this school where a good number of teaches participated.
Member Secretary Zonal Reform Committee, Javid Iqbal Sheikh said that the new enrolment data is being collected from each school on daily basis which displays higher trend with each passing day.
Till date more than 350 new students were enrolled in various schools of the zone, he added.
Headmaster Middle School Sharkoot Ab Jabar Najar said “Though our school has a nice infrastructure and we are receiving a good response from parents but the only problem with the school is that it has least strength of sanctioned posts and the deployed staff goes changing after the expiry of each academic session. This routine of shifting staff tells upon the performance of the school. Similarly other schools of zone are also busy in campaigning and propagating this new norm.
Though Enrolment drive is at Full swing but a command and overwhelming demand from both parents and teachers is that Govt should introduce syllabus at par to private schools, especially at primary level, to have more and more positive results.
