While convening public grievance camp at Srinagar today, Kumar said that Government was taking all possible measures to ensure that quality education is imparted to the students at the government-run schools.

“It is heartwarming to notice that examinations were held in the cordial atmosphere across Jammu and Kashmir and timely results were also declared,” Kumar said. “Parents and civil society members should also come forward and help us maintain the quality in the School campuses,” he added.

He said that the best gift that one can give to their children is a gift of education. “Some of the best moments of childhood are spent on the school campus and we all must ensure that we provide all services to the students under one roof,” he said. He urged people to come forward and register their grievances during the camps convened by the Administrative Secretaries.

Kumar said that Government was taking all possible measures for setting a benchmark of excellence in school education.

“With high expectations from parents and the teaching fraternity, schools today are going the extra mile to strive for that coveted accreditation for providing quality education,” he said urging teaching fraternity to work for the betterment of the school education. He said that educational institutions are considered the cornerstone of knowledge and learning.

Kumar said that apart from maximizing academic potential, these award-winning institutions also inculcate values, help develop social skills, play a key role in character building, influence the emotional stability of students and shape their career paths going forward.

“All we need to focus is to make schools vibrant spaces for students,” he said.

Speaking to various deputations during the day-long public outreach programme, Kumar said that Government was aiming to address all the grievances of people and also providing them with better service delivery. During the camp various service-related matters were also taken up.

Several deputations from Kulgam, Baramulla, Ganderbal, Pulwama, Budgam and Srinagar districts apprised him about their issues and demands.  The Commissioner Secretary gave patient hearing to the deputations and assured them that all their genuine issues would be looked into and addressed accordingly.

Later, the Commissioner Secretary chaired a meeting with the officials of the School Education Department and officials of the Department of Social Welfare to review the functioning of the respective departments.
