A few months ahead of the annual board examination of Class X and XII students, the Haryana education department has asked the principals of government schools to approach the village panchayats to create a conducive study environment at home, especially to motivate the children to wake up early and study in the wee hours (at 4:30 am).
In a directive issued to the school principals on Thursday, the education department mentioned: “The newly elected members of panchayats should be urged to make such efforts that an environment is created in the villages for studies during early morning hours. Temples, mosques, and gurdwaras should be contacted for early morning announcements (through loudspeakers) so that the students wake up and start studying. With this initiative, the students are expected to get extra 2-3 hours for studies.”
Director (secondary education) Anshaj Singh has sent a letter to the district education officers and principals of all government schools in the state asking them to take appropriate steps for preparations for Class X and XII examinations.
