On the eve of Holi, government teachers went all out to convince parents in their area to enrol their children in government schools by sending attractive pictures and e-brochures of facilities available in respective schools across Barnala district.
Most teachers said the festival had specifically been chosen for the campaign. Teachers and heads sent out pictures of school buildings and other facilities to prominent personalities of the area to greet them on Holi and sought their support to increase admissions in their respective schools. The authorities had prepared e-prospectus and e-magazines. “We shared with key personalities and parents the details of our buildings, achievements and facilities at our schools through online and offline modes. We got good response,” said Rajesh Kumar, headmaster, Government High School, Barnala.
