Govt schools’ drive to enrol students gets good response

Tribune News Service

Amritsar, June 8

The Education Department’s enrolment drive has generated a good response in the district. The department has halted the process due to summer vacations and in wake of on-going summer camps in certain schools. Many also feel that better results in the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) examinations, awareness regarding facilities being offered at the government schools, has attracted new admissions.

Government schools in the city had commenced with ‘Each One Bring One’ enrolment campaign on April 1. Many schools in the city have reported that the students of private school have also come for admissions.

District education officials have attributed it to continuous efforts of the department, including extra-classes being taken by teachers and improved infrastructure.

“There has been a slight change in the perception of the people towards government schools. Students from private school have also taken admissions in our school,” said a government schoolteacher.

A total of 96,997 students have got themselves enrolled in the secondary section (Class VI-XII). Education officials have asked staff, including principals and teachers, create awareness among people on the drive. The campaign suggests teachers and students to bring new students for admission. The drive will be concluded on July 31. The department hopes that the admissions will rise further.
