Students at senior secondary residential school for meritorious have to wait for another two months for computers, as we are under process of procuring them.
Project director for meritorious schools, Punjab Major General KAS Bhullar (retd) stated this while interacting with students at senior secondary residential school for meritorious, near Rose garden on Saturday.
He said after two months all six residential schools in Punjab would get computers.
This is for the third time that project director has visited the school. He said we need a right candidate for the post of principal, so we would again advertise for the post.
It is pertinent to mention here that the school started on August 4, and till now the post of principal and warden is lying vacant. Anoop Kumar Passi, principal of government of the school senior secondary school, cemetery road, is handling the charge of officiating principal, and all teachers in the school are deputed as warden on rotation basis.
Interacting with students, he said, "I am aware that there are no proper books in the school library. We will send funds to the school, so that they can purchase books according to the requirement of students."
He directed students to interact with their classmates and teachers in English. To improve their vocabulary and pronunciation, he asked the students to read newspapers and magazines.
Talking to Hindustan Times, Bhullar said, "For a few more months teachers will take coaching classes, and I have directed the students to do self study also. Next month we will start the process of recruiting 114 teachers to teach Class 12 students in all six residential schools. So that, when students will join school in April, every school must have sufficient number of teachers."
A student, requesting anonymity, said, "Last month, due to lack of computers, all students have given computer practicals on laptops of teachers. So, if we will get computers, we can practice for our practicals, as final exams are scheduled to be held in March."
