In the last three months, primary schools have received recurring grants to maintain health and hygiene practices on campus and to facilitate the pre-primary classes with the latest equipment and infrastructure.

The classrooms now have first aid corners, and the walls have been decorated keeping in mind the age of the students. They are also equipped with sanitizers, liquid soap dispensers, water campers, doormats, and kits comprising towels, nail cutters, and combs.

Government Primary School, Dakha, has 130 pre-primary students. For students’ creative development, it has come up with puzzles and dollhouses. To make the classrooms more fun and interesting, they have been equipped with bowling and billiards games for children.

Paramjit Singh, the cluster headteacher, said, “We have followed all the instructions given to us and have utilised the grant in the best way. Students of pre-primary classes will be overjoyed once they enter their revamped classrooms.”

Government Primary School, Majri in Block Khanna-2, comprises 23 pre-primary students. The school has equipped its pre-primary classroom with colourful chairs and tables, soft toys, and attractive walls with different quotations. The classroom also has facilities such as no-touch foot-operated sanitizers, water campers, blankets, mattresses, waterproof wall mats, and stainless-steel dustbins.
