It is a proud moment for the district as 22 Government Senior Secondary Schools of Ludhiana have been bestowed upon the “Smart School” tag. The appreciation letters and the smart school tags were given to these schools by the Secretary, Department of School Education, Punjab, Krishan Kumar, recently.

Principal of GSSS, Shahpur, Dr Devinder Singh Chinna, said: “It is certainly a proud moment for the school, teachers, students and the village that the school has been accorded the Smart School tag. Like others, we, too, had put in sincere efforts in getting the tag for the school. The teachers had put in a lot of hard work and villagers extended their cooperation — everything contributed to making the school a smart one. We will continue with our efforts so that the school achieves greater heights in the future,” said Dr Chinna.
