Arivu distributes books to kids

With the aim of common school­ing for all and encouraging more parents to send their children to government schools instead of private schools, the volunteers of ‘Arivu,’ a non-governmental or­ganisation on Monday organised a book distribution programme to school going students.

Former minister S A Ramadas distributed books and stationery to 200 children of Akkana Bala­ga School on Thyagaraja Road in Agrahara. Speaking on the oc­casion, Ramdas said that parents must come forward to join their ward to government school in­stead of private schools. Children should not feel bad on seeing the other kids going to private institu­tions which offer better facilities and they should concentrate only their studies rather than worrying on such aspects.

Mayor B L Bhyrappa said that we are making an honest ef­fort to make use of the facilities provided by the government. ”Improving quality education in government schools has been a priority and we are committed in ensuring that.”

Social worker K Raghur­am, Corporator B V Manjunath, BJP leader Jogi Manjunath and others were present.
