Government High School (RMSA), Hira Wali, in Fazilka is not just another school. All its students scored impressive grades in matriculation, the school’s science model was adjudged third at a state-level contest and it topped the district in the Swachh Bharat campaign and the state in Parho Punjab drive. 

The school, that has creditable infrastructure, religiously adheres to its calendar on co-curricular activities, points out principal Dr Navjeet Kaur Sran with pride. She has every reason to feel so. With 83.5 per cent marks, her school has been  ranked number one among the 1,740 government high schools evaluated by the Education Department.

Government Senior Secondary School, Dabwali Rahurian, in Muktsar with 82.6 per cent marks has been adjudged the best among the 1,886 senior secondary government schools in Punjab for over-all performance. Humbled, its principal Hansraj Chauhan credits the school staff as well as the village residents for the success. 

“All our Plus Two students scored more than 60 per cent marks. We faced staff shortage earlier but that  problem has now been addressed. We have a good library and science lab. The school lawns and playgrounds are well-maintained. The school building is given a fresh coat of paint regularly,” he says.  No special incentives have been announced for the two winning schools. “The department will submit the report to Education Minister OP Soni and then take a call in the matter,” Deputy State Project Director Manoj Kumar told The Tribune.

The department is in the process of compiling the grading list for the state’s primary and middle schools. The data on all schools is expected to help the government in policy-making.
