January 14, 2020

Rawalpindi: Commissioner Rawalpindi and Chairman Board of Governors Divisional Public School (DPS) Capt (r) Muhammad Mehmood has said that educational reforms should be introduced in the DPS Rawalpindi to focus on the educational standards and character building of the students, and an environment should be created which makes learning an interesting experience.

He said government education institutions have been prioritised to improve their standard as per vision of Prime Minister Imran Khan and Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar, and DPS schools can play a leading role for this purpose by giving equal attention on educational and extracurricular activities of the students so that well skilled human resources can be provided to various professions.

He said this during his visit to DPS Rawalpindi, where he was also briefed about the educational performance of the school. Principal Arjumand Asif was also present on the occasion. The commissioner approved the constitution of the BOD and agenda of its forthcoming meeting. He also gave special instruction for the selection mechanism, qualification and experience of the new principal of the school.

The commissioner said that special attention should be paid on the co-curricular activities of the students and at least two educational and recreational trips for every class should be arranged every year. He said proper election should be held for the constitution of the student’s council so that the students could be given awareness about democratic system. He said special training workshops should be arranged for the teachers besides visits of teachers to leading institutions of the country. The Commissioner expressed his displeasure over the matriculation results of the school and said 80 per cent of students should get A+ or A-grade and C-grade is not acceptable.
