Teachers of government schools which achieved 100 per cent results in Class X examinations are all set to get special recognition from the district administration.
The District Collector Saurabh Gaur and officials of educational department will honour headmaster and teachers of 53 schools under ‘Vijayam’ programme.
As a first step, Mr. Saurabh Gaur visited government school in Sundarapuram village of Narasannapeta mandal on Thursday and hoisted ‘Vijayam’ flag on the premises of institution.
He felicitated headmaster I. Srinivasu and other teachers who ensured 100 per cent results in the school.
As many as 34 students passed Class X with distinction, indicating that the government schools can compete with corporate schools in the district.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Gaur said that all the 53 out of 431 schools will be declared as best institutions while sanctioning more funds under the Rasthriya Madhyamika Siksha Abhiyan.
He assured that additional classrooms will be constructed and infrastructure such as compound walls, toilets, furniture would be provided for achieving good results.
“I request parents to send their children to government institutions where qualified teachers are available . The government spends around Rs. 1,200 on each student if the expenditure on each school is calculated,” he added.
Srikakulam Deputy Educational Officer Balivada Malleswara Rao thanked the Collector for launching Vijayam programme that would motivate all the teachers.
He hoped that more than 150 schools will achieve 100 per cent results in 2013-14 academic year.
District Public Relations Officer L. Ramesh, village elders and others participated.
