Walk held to increase enrollement

CHITRAL, April 30:  To increase enrollment ratio in the government primary schools of Chitral, an education walk was held here under the auspices of Mohammad Ashraf, president All Primary Teachers Association (APTA).  Students from different educational institutions carrying banners and placards inscribed with the messages asking parents to enroll their children in schools passed through various bazaars and entered Govt. Primary School Chitral where it converted into a big gathering. Executive Magistrate Chitral Ziaur Rehman was chief guest on the occasion while the ceremony was presided over by Mohammad Afzal, General Manager National Commission for Human Development (NCHD). Students on the occasion recited from the Holy Quran, presented Naath and sang national songs and also participated in speech competition in English and Urdu. Some of the teachers also admitted their children in the school to launch the enrollment campaign. Addressing on the occasion, the speakers said highly qualified and well-trained teachers were working in all public sector schools but unfortunately check and balance and accountability system was very weak in the country that is why people had lost confidence in these schools. On the other hand, teachers of private schools are getting less salary as compared to government schools but the owners of these schools strictly watched them and implemented check and balance system. They asked the teachers to teach their students honestly and restore public confidence in the schools.  They said everyone should observer self-accountability and perform their duties honestly.  A large number of students, teachers and social workers attended the function.—GH Farooqui  ]]>
