Private schools advance fee | NCA barbed wires

'Private schools cannot charge more than two-month fee'
Lahore, June 04, 2008: Executive District Officer (Education) Lahore has said that conducting classes of male and female students in the same premises is a clear violation of the government instructions.

In a DGPR handout, EDO (Education) Abdul Shakoor Anjum warned the heads of such educational institutions to set up separate campuses for male and female students.

He said it had also come into the notice of the Education Department that some private educational institutions were collecting three months fee in one instalment due to summer vacation which was against the law and resulted in financial burden on parents.

He said the heads of all the private educational institutions had been directed not to collect more than two months' fee in one instalment from the students, otherwise strict action would be taken against them under Punjab Private Education Ordinance (Promotion & Regulation) 1984. The News

NCA puts up barbed wires around campus
Lahore: The National College of Arts (NCA) has installed barbed wires circling the college and on the main gate to add security. The college administration took this decision following police instructions to increase security measures, learnt on Tuesday.

After the bomb blast in Islamabad on Monday, it has become imperative to protect students as well as the college boundaries, Nazish Attaullah, the NCA principal said, adding that police officials asked them to increase security to stop unauthorised visitors from entering the college by climbing over the walls.

She said that approximately 700 students attend NCA and it is the administration's responsibility to protect them. She added that taking the situation of the country into consideration, especially the recent suicide attack in Islamabad, security has become the top priority.

Academic institutions situated on Mall Road have all taken steps to add security after a spate of bomb blasts in the city, especially as the Mall has been the focus of suicide attacks recently. Some schools have banned both foreign and private visitors from entering their grounds and some have closed all extra gates Students at NCA had mixed responses to this step, with some students saying that adding security was a positive step while others deemed it a nuisance.

Hina, a student of the college, said that the administration had made a wise decision installing barbed wires because the college is located in a main area where students can easily be attacked However, student Salman Ahmed said that NCA, being a liberal and modern institution, did not need to add wires because it would make a negative impression, signalling that there was something wrong with the university.
