100 youth team off to China under exchange programme
Islamabad: A 100-member delegation, comprising youth from across the country, left for China here Sunday under the Youth Exchange Programme (YEP) of the Ministry of Youth Affairs.

Headed by Federal Minister for Youth Affairs Shahid Hussain Bhutto, the delegation comprises students of 15-29 years of age, selected from all the four provinces on the basis of their brilliant performance in both co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

During its seven-day stay in China, the delegates will visit its major cities and attend various seminars and conferences at Chinese universities in order to exchange ideas regarding education, culture, and the field of science & technology among the youth of both the countries.

Prior to leaving for China, Shahid Hussain Bhutto told APP that both the countries exchange their youth delegations annually under the Pak-China Friendship programme.

"These youngsters are the ambassadors of Pakistan and can portray a soft image of the country through such programmes," he remarked. Pakistan enjoys cordial and friendly relations with China and initiating such type of programmes would help create understanding among the youth of both the countries and strengthen further bonds. In this regard, the youth delegation of China visited Pakistan in February this year to pave way for further improvement of the youth exchange programmes.

Talking about the National Internship Programme (NIP), the minister said the inaugural ceremony of NIP would be held on April 25 at Larkana while a total of 22,000 youths would be accommodated in the Programme with a stipend of Rs10,000 per month.

He further said the National Volunteer Movement (NVM) would also be made functional soon with different welfare and development programmes.

To address other issues regarding youth, the National Youth Policy would serve the youth at maximum in order to make them useful citizens of the country. The News

Securing schools
The Interior Ministry is said to have issued advisory instructions to schools, especially the big-name private schools, to beef up their security arrangements against any possible terrorist attack. They have been advised to employ sufficient number of private security armed guards, install security walk-through gates and CCTV cameras, issue school stickers for the car/vehicles dropping and picking up children, regulate traffic at the schools' opening and closing times, arrange for cars to be parked at some distance from school gates, install PA system and sirens etc, etc. These are good measures and must be strictly followed by all. Schools should formulate their own contingency plans tailored to their particular environs to counter effectively various emergency situations. Staff and students must not only be trained in taking the most appropriate action required for each contingency but periodic and regular mock drills must also be held at least once a week to prepare everybody.

In the event of an attack immediate reaction and quick dispersion cannot be over-emphasised for minimizing the risk of casualties. Mobility and light weight are of paramount importance for quick dispersion, which would be greatly impeded if the young students are laden with their heavy back breaking satchels. They will simply not be able to run. It is, therefore, strongly suggested that the students must not carry their satchels while coming to or leaving the school gates. Satchels should be kept in school and not taken home by students. Even if there are no lockers, which in most cases are not, the satchels should be left in classrooms or on the student's desk. Leaving the satchels in school could pose problem in doing homework. For that, the students could be made to stay for an extra hour or so in schools to do the assigned homework. Doing homework in schools is not an unknown practice. It is done in many public and private schools all over the world. -COL. (Retd) Riaz Jafri, Rawalpindi, via e-mail (The Nation)
