Lucknow: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will formally inaugurate the Atal Residential Schools set up at all 18 divisional headquarters of the state from Varanasi on September 23 during which he is likely to interact with the students.
In the preparations for this event, Atal Residential School in Gorakhpur has also been included for a virtual interaction with PM Modi.
The setting up of Atal Residential Schools in all the divisional headquarters of the state by the Yogi government is an innovative initiative to provide excellent residential facilities and quality education free of cost to the children of labourers and destitute children due to Covid in the state.
The first academic session has already begun in the Atal Residential Schools set up by the UP government. In the first session, based on the merit of the divisional-level entrance examination, 80 students (40 boys and 40 girls) were admitted to class sixth in these schools.
The first academic session of Atal Residential School, located in Sahjanwa, Gorakhpur and operated under the UP Building and Other Construction Workers Welfare Board, was inaugurated at an admission ceremony held on September 11.
It may be noted that the students are being provided excellent accommodation, food, studies and extra-curricular activities at the school. They are enthusiastically participating in every activity with full dedication.
Principal of Atal Residential School Ajit Kumar Singh said that a friendly environment has been created for the children here, from the hostel to the school.
He mentioned that every convenience and need of the children is being taken care of, and they are actively participating in every activity scheduled from morning until evening.
Deputy Labour Commissioner Amit Kumar Mishra said that all Atal Residential Schools will be formally inaugurated by PM Modi from Varanasi. During the inauguration, he may also interact with the children.
While the final decision is pending, preliminary preparations have begun for ‘two-way’ communication with PM Modi.
