LAHORE
Punjab Minister for Education Rana Mashhood Ahmed Khan inaugurating biometric system at Government Girls High School Gulshan-e-Ravi on Tuesday said this computerized system of checking attendance of teachers would be introduced in all schools.
Mashhood lamented that 3.2 million children of Punjab did not go to schools which include 290,000 children from the age of five to nine years of district Lahore. He was hopeful that teachers would visit every house of the area to ensure that no child of Gulshan-e-Ravi was out of school.

The minister said the Punjab government had planned to provide solar panels instead of generators in government schools of the far-flung areas having no supply of electricity.
Senior Headmistress Mrs Rubina Gull Shabbir thanked the minister for the grant for the school lab. The minister distributed shields among students who secured positions.
