Mehbooba stresses on more student exchanges, school interactions

JAMMU: Chief Minister, Meh­booba Mufti today laid stress on more and more interactions and exchanges among the school chil­dren of the State so that they are well groomed to face the competi­tions and challenges of future life.

Chairing the Governing Body meet of Sainik School Manasbal here today, the Chief Minister said besides regular course cur­riculum the students at school levels need necessary kind of exposure so that they prepare themselves, from very early, for the competitions and challenges of life ahead. She said mecha­nism for such institutional link­ages should be evolved so that the students, besides academics, develop the level of exposure which would be a psychological cushion for them while facing the challenges of life.

Minister for Education, Naeem Akhtar and Minister of State for Education, Priya Sethi were also present on the occasion.

The Chief Minister said though the students in the schools of the State are very talented but what they lag in is the exposure to face the outer world. She said instanc­es have proved that whenever the students from the State get an opportunity at national or inter­national level they come up with flying colours.

Mehbooba Mufti said Sainik School Manasbal has remained a distinct educational institute in the past and directed taking steps for stabilizing and improv­ing further its educational stan­dards. She directed the comple­tion of compound walling of the school and also necessary up gradation of the physical infra­structure there.
