2. No child shall be employed as child labour.
3. Quality education shall be imparted to all children, in all schools, through regular monitoring and continuous evaluation of the children’s learning levels.
The “Badi Pilusthundi - Vidya Varotsavalu” campaign will be launched formally by the Hon’ble Minister, HRD on reopening of schools on 12th June 2017 at Vishakapatnam. All through the week it is proposed to take up the program in an innovative and interesting manner with children as the focus.
Hence, it is instructed that during the First Week of school reopening, the “Badi Pilusthundi - Vidya Varotsavalau” program the focus should be on students who have come to the school. They should be welcomed in a special manner and each day of the week at school made an exciting, enjoyable and interesting experience to them. The day wise activities listed in the annexure should be taken up at the school level to engage the students and also to attract the children outside the school. It is requested to make it a memorable experience to the children, so that they feel motivated and excited and bring the other children from the neighbourhood to attend the school.
We believe that our well qualified, trained and motivated teachers are key to making children come to school and in making the learning experience interesting and exciting for them. While the annexed day to day program gives a broad schedule, Headmasters and teachers may be encouraged to be innovative and creative in implementing the same.
