'SSA to keep track of donations to govt schools'

ZP felicitates best SDMCs in DK district

All the donations given by the donors to the government schools will be henceforth ‘stored’ in a special software meant for the purpose to keep a track of all the donations received by the schools, said Zilla Panchayat Chief Executive Officer Dr K N Vijayaprakash.

Delivering presidential address at the felicitation of best SDMCs in the district at a programme jointly organised by DK Zilla Panchayat and Department of Public Instructions at DIET on Friday, he said that the schools will be utilising the software meant for donation details from this academic year.

“Attempts have been made to provide more exposure to the government school children in the form of Krishi Darshana, where the children are taken to farm land to understand the basics of farming. We have received highest funds under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyana this year and a specific amount will be utilised for building the compound walls. The government schools in the district have received Rs 5.50 crore as donation from donors and from MLA and MPs fund,” informed the CEO.

Education Department Assistant Director of Mysore division, Anand appreciated the efforts of School Development Monitoring Committees (SDMCs) in the over all growth of schools in the district. The government schools in Dakshina Kannada are doing quite well without expecting much funds from the government, he said.

Speaking about the issue of RTC of the government school land in the district, he asked the authorities to ensure that the land which is in the name of donors is converted to the schools name.  Receiving the felicitation, Devasya Padur SDMC President Adinath Jain shared that though their school had only 38 children, the one quality that made their school stand apart is the strong bond between the teachers, students, parents and SDMC members.

Perlampady school SDMC President Vishnu Bhat said that the felicitation had given them a moral boost to continue the good work. “Our SDMC has been working for the welfare of the school facing all odds,” he said.
