New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), Vice Chairman, Shri Satish Upadhyay inaugurates wall-painting and distribute dry-ration to the school children at Atal Adarsh Prathmik Vidyalaya, Moti Bagh along with Director (Education), Shri R.P.Sati, Principal, Teachers of the schools and concerned senior officers of NDMC.
Appreciating the beautifully painted murals and quotes on the walls of the school by the teachers and children, Shri Upadhyay said that such art is informative and inspirational for the children. He said that art engages children’s senses in open play and also helps in the development of cognitive, social-emotional and multisensory skills.
After the distribution of dry-ration amongst the children and their parents, Shri Upadhyay inspected the mid-day meal served to the students. He interacts with the students and takes a view of the mid-day meal they are getting. Most of the students are not satisfied with the meals they are getting. The children complain that they are getting the same meal again & again. Most of the time they are getting Dalia continuously for four days which they don’t like. He finds that 99% of kids are not happy with the meal. Shri Upadhyay instructed the concerned to do the changes as food plays an important role in the development of children.
Shri Upadhyay said that I am not satisfied with the Civil & Electric Engineering Department’s work. He said there is a provision in the Budget to make a separate “Engineering wing” for School Development but still there is nothing executed by NDMC till date.
He strictly gives the instructions to the Education Department to conduct a yearly Audit of all the Schools which are run by NDMC. He said that there should be a provision of proper Halls to organize programmes/events, Swings for children, Neat & Clean Washrooms, CCTV for security provision etc. in schools which are the basic need for development of children.
Shri Upadhyaya gave strict instructions to the concerned to take necessary action to complete all the deficiencies at the earliest. He said that any kind of negligence at workplaces and especially in schools will not be tolerated by any department. He said that all departments should ensure their responsibilities. He said that in the absence of basic amenities, we cannot play with the future of children. Shri Upadhyay said that such surprise inspections will continue.
On the occasion school children presented a colourful cultural programme.
