The Jammu and Kashmir government on Sunday announced the completion of setting up of 25 smart schools in Srinagar.
“Belated though, here is the new year gift for Srinagar. After months of hard work, our 25 smart schools are ready to offer students and parents the best. Let’s make it great #SmartCity,” tweeted Shahid Iqbal Choudhary, District Magistrate/Development Commissioner, Srinagar.
On September 19, the Srinagar Administration had announced that it had embarked on an ambitious project to transform government schools in the district into vibrant and competitive institutions of learning equipped with the most modern facilities.
The process started with the development of 25 pilot schools on modern lines, refurbishing entire school buildings, equipping them with modern infrastructure and revamping their academic structure aimed at improving their learning outcomes.
Choudhary while speaking on the occasion had said that a comprehensive modernisation plan based on real models as existing in public schools outside the state has been chalked out to ensure successful execution of this ambitious project.
