Delhi to get its 1st School of Football Excellence at C R Park: Manish Sisodia
NEW DELHI: Delhi will get its first School of Football Excellence at C R Park, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia announced on Tuesday. The Education Department officials will make the final plan for the project.
"This is a lot of space, we should do something with it. Let's develop this as the School of Football Excellence in C R Park." he said after consultation with the school management committee led by the principal, MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj and the Director of Education (DoE).
In the school, 164 classrooms are being built by the Public Works Department (PWD). While discussing the plan, he identified the expanse of land available within the campus and instructed the Education Department to initiate the plan for a high-end football ground in the school.
He visited SPM Sarvodaya Vidyalaya in CR Park with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj and announced that the football ground will be built to utilise the vast empty space between the old and the newly constructed buildings.
He visited the area as part of his daily morning visits to the Delhi government schools to review the progress made in the construction of classrooms in various schools of South Delhi. City government has planned to build 13,003 classes in government schools within this year.
"Early morning started with an inspection of the construction of classrooms, CCTV cameras and solar panels in 8 #DelhiGovtSchools in Andrews Ganj, Masjid Moth, East Of Kailash, CR Park, Thughlakabad and New Friends Colony today morning," he tweeted.
On June 11, the Deputy CM visited eight Delhi government schools in Andrews Ganj, Masjid Moth, East of Kailash, CR Park, Tughlakabad and New Friends Colony to take stock of various projects.
SKV Andrews Ganj now has a terrace solar power generating capacity of 30 KW which has reduced its electricity bill from Rs 35,000 to zero as it is now producing surplus power and adding it to the power grid, the statement said.
"Successful pilot of terrace solar panels in #DelhiGovtSchools. The electricity bill for this school reduced from Rs 35,000 to zero. Already installed in 21, being installed in 100, the plan is to install in a total of 550 schools. An important step towards making Delhi power reliant," Sisodia tweeted.
