Srinagar: With over 1 lakh students in J&K enrolled for free winter tuitions and another 1000 undergoing coaching in CMs Super-50 Programme, the Education Departments inimitable initiatives have already started making a tangible mark in the states fast-transforming academic scenario.
These initiatives are proving to be a turning point in the states academic history with even the concept of winter vacations having become an outdated practice now, said Naeem Akhtar, Minister for Education.
He said it is for the first time that hundreds of schools in the State are not only fully functional during winters, but are buzzing with academic and co-curricular activities.
Under the multifarious academic and co-curricular winter activities, the Education Department is simultaneously and successfully running three academic-advancement and personality development programmes for the students free of cost.
Akhtar said the Government is of the view to make schools and colleges as knowledge hubs for not just the students and teachers but also for the community.
