In order to motivate the people towards government schools, besides conducting door-to-door visits by the teachers, flexes were being put up in common places and meetings are being held with Panches, Sarpanches, Councillors and other dignitaries. Posters, videos, short films depicting the features of government schools are being prepared and shared on social media.
It is pertinent to mention here that Pb Education Minister while presiding over a high-level meeting with all the education officers and district teams of the state has set a target of enrolling one lakh new students in a single day on the first day of the admission drive during the campaign scheduled to run from 8 am to 8 pm.
Punjab Education Minister Bains said that he would personally monitor the operation and has directed the officials of the department to set up admission booths at the main gate of every government school in Punjab from March 10, 2023 to March 31, 2023, to make the admission drive-2023 more effective.
The Education Minister unequivocally directed the officers that as per the vision of the Chief Minister Mr. Bhagwant Mann, every officer should work with utmost diligence and honesty to improve the quality of education in government schools to the international level.
Mr Bains said that while the school staff who got the highest number of new admissions would be given a certificate of appreciation and special financial assistance to the school, a meeting would also be organised with the CM Bhagwant Mann.
