The Haryana director general of police (DGP), Ranjeev Singh Dalal, inaugurated Shri Ram School in Bhondsi on Tuesday. He said several such premium schools will be opened at different districts to cater to police officers' kids.
“The Policemen's Education Society will be constituted to take care of the educational needs of children of serving policemen,” said Dalal.
“This will enable the police to perform their duty more efficiently without bothering about the education of their wards. The proposal to constitute such a society has been sent to the state government for approval and the inspector general of police will head the society,” he added.
He said that the school is a joint venture of Haryana police and Shri Ram Education Foundation. “At least 50% seats will be reserved for children of policemen and the rest will be for children in nearby villages. The fee structure will be highly subsidized and they will have to pay only R1,500 per month, which equals the fee charged in any private school in Gurgaon,” said Dalal.
Initially, admissions will be done from nursery to Class 4, and a class will be added every year. There will be 30 students per class.
The school has enough space for horse-riding, swimming, golf, hockey, football and other recreational activities. It is spread over 9 acres, and the facility provides good learning environment for children.
“You won’t find a similar school with so much open space anywhere in Gurgaon or Delhi,” said Dalal. Apart from children of officials of Haryana police, wards of officials serving in Bhondsi Jail, CRPF camp and BSF training centre can take qualitative education from this school.
