Minister inaugurates golden jubilee celebrations of Nirmala High School

The golden jubilee celebrations of Nirmala High School got kicked off on a grand note here on Saturday. Addressing the inaugural function Secondary Education Minister K. Parthasarathy said the State government was contemplating recruiting teachers for aided schools shortly. The government would also rationalise the student-teacher ratio in the schools for better results. Mr. Parthasarathy, however, did not elaborate.

Modern education, the Minister said, caused students to mug up their lesson and write it in the exam. The ongoing ‘corporate war’ was causing agony and mental stress. The educational institutions need to take a lead and mount pressure on the government to take necessary steps in putting an end to it, he said.

Vijayawada MP Lagadapati Rajagopal, MLAs Velampalli Srinivas, Malladi Vishnu, and Yelamanchili Ravi, Krishna district Collector M. Raghunandana Rao, Kadapa Collector M. Sasidhar, PIME regional superior Fr. Ralph Jasavala, provincial superior Maria Vettatchu, Fr. P.J. Stephen, School principal Bizi Phillip Nirmala, Old Students Association president Karnati Sarath and others attended the glittering inaugural.

Mr. Rajagopal spoke on the times he cherished during his childhood and spoke about those teachers who were dear to him and the necessity of education in life today. Mr. Yelamanchili Ravi said Union Minister K. Chiranjeevi and the Vijayawada MP sanctioned Rs.25 lakh for construction of golden jubilee auditorium.
