Buildings of 2,700 schools in Punjab declared dangerous
Rawalpindi: The buildings of around 2,700 schools out of 62,500, all over Punjab, have been deemed dangerous for thousands of students and teachers. However, no solid step has been taken to improve the condition of these schools.

Sources told this scribe that in 2009 on the directives of the Punjab government, the Education Planning Management (EPM), carried out a survey of entire schools in Punjab and reported that the condition of over 2,700 schools including primary, elementary, secondary, middle as well as high is dangerous and need immediate attention for rehabilitation and revamping. Besides this, the EPM reported that more than 2,000 schools are functioning without roofs and buildings and the students are taking their classes in open spaces in harsh winter and summer seasons and many students have fallen victim to different ailments during harsh weather conditions. The studies of the students are largely affected particularly from class VII to Class X due to lack of proper buildings. The matter does not end here because more than 50 per cent schools lack facilities of toilets, forcing the teachers, students and staff to seek help of neighbourhood houses for this purpose.

Submitted its survey report to the Punjab government, the EPM suggested immediate and practical measures for rectifying the over all agonizing situation of these schools. On this report, the Punjab Chief Minister Mian Shahbaz Shariff not only allocated funds in the annual development plan but also issued necessary directions to the relevant authorities in educational directorates for initiating work on revamping, rehabilitation of schools. However, despite passage of three years and allocations of funds, no positive step has been taken to improve the condition of these schools.

When this correspondent approached All Punjab Teachers Association President Rawalpindi Sagheer Aalam said that working in schools has become hard for teachers because of poor condition of schools and non-availability of other facilities.

"Whenever, the Teachers Association approaches the high officials in educational directorates, they give lame excuse of shortage of funds despite the fact huge amount has been allocated for this purpose in the annual development plan," he added.

When this correspondent approached Executive District Officer (EDO), Education, Qazi Zahoor ul Haq, he said that the ratio of dangerous schools would be high in southern Punjab. "The concerned directorates spend the allocated amount on revamping of dangerous and dilapidated buildings. Similarly work on construction of roofs and buildings in the schools, which lack these facilities are done every year. Because of work carried on yearly basis, the number of dangerous schools is coming down each year," the EDO said.

In Rawalpindi, he said there are only 5 per cent of such schools. However, necessary work on revamping and their rehabilitation is being carried out, he added.

Punjab secretary education did not attend repeated calls made by this correspondent for his comments over the matter. The news

Local school chain introduces smartboards
Islamabad: A school chain has replaced blackboards with smartboards to enhance the learning experience of Pakistani students.

The decision to introduce appropriate technology among Pakistani students was taken in recognition of their exceptional intellectual potential. The smart boards, which provide an efficient way of teaching, will help realise the aim of preparing students to cope with future challenges. They help energise presentations, motivate learners, enhance competence, and enable students to listen to the lecture instead of taking notes, hence saving time while maximising productivity. Students can view three-dimensional objects and they can interact with learning material, as their fingers become the mouse. Moreover, students in different classes and remote campuses can talk and act together seamlessly through wireless connection, which allows high-speed transmission of sounds, images, documents and other information.

Before introducing smart boards, also known as white boards, the PakTurk International Schools and Colleges invited Fahri Eren, an expert from Turkey, to impart necessary training to the teachers. He visited various campuses for the purpose and told educators that electronic boards are windows to the world. Students having access to these boards are lucky as they are exposed to tonnes of informative material.

Underlining the importance of modern knowledge sharing and teaching method, Eren stressed upon the teachers to give their best to ensure successful future for students. The newly introduced technology will help teachers to learn and develop more, enable students overcome shortfalls and help bridge the digital divide, he said.
