She also announced that new schools are being constructed in Narela, Bawana, Prem Nagar, Janata Vihar and Vishnu Garden, while 3 others will be completed in the next two months, and talked about MCD’s new initiatives like repairing school buildings, constructing new ones, hiring security personnel in schools as well as recruiting data entry operators.
“Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal is very serious about improving the infrastructure of MCD schools. Clear instructions have been given that no student should sit on the ground,” she said.
‘Most of MCD schools to get guards soon’
New Delhi: Delhi Mayor Shelly Oberoi announced on Thursday that Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) is getting funds from the Delhi government and soon most of the MCD schools will have data entry operators and security personnel, at a science fair organised by Pushp Vihar Sector-1 MCD school.
In the fair, schools of South Zone presented models on various scientific topics like Chandrayaan, millet grains and energy. On the occasion, the Mayor said that during her inspections, she found that there are no security guards in schools and the shortage of data entry operators forces the teachers to take on additional workload which affects the quality of education in schools.
