Jalandhar, June 10

The Punjab government’s endeavour to ensure comprehensive development of children from weaker and underprivileged sections of the society through summer camps in government schools, has facilitated 1,776 such students who attended these camps.

On the directions of the state government, the district administration had organised summer camps in 41 schools of the district, which were attended by 1,776 students and 103 teachers were deployed for successful conduct of these camps.

In these camps, students participated in various activities like clay modelling, best out of waste, making greeting cards, mask making, doll making, paper folding and cutting, skit/ dance/drama, collage making, poem recitation, painting, yoga, cultural activities and others.

Likewise, they were also given lectures on moral values, good eating habits and other issues during the camps.

Divulging details, the Deputy Commissioner Varinder Kumar Sharma Jalandhar said the main aim of organising these camps was to ensure overall development of the school children. He said contrary to the private schools where students got ample such chances by spending huge sum of money, these camps were organised free of cost by the State government for students of primary government schools.

Sharma said these camps were in consonance with the policy of the State government, to ensure holistic development of students of government schools, so that they could excel in life.

The DC said these camps, besides breaking the monotony of bookish knowledge among students, inspire them to excel in varied fields of art and culture.
