Manish Sisodia launches double-shift school at Shahbad Dairy

January 3, 2020

A new four-storey building has been built at North West Delhi’s Shahbad Dairy, which will be used for a double-shift Delhi government school. Inaugurated on Thursday by Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia, the new building will now house the Government Girls Senior Secondary School in the morning shift and the Government Boys Senior Secondary School in the afternoon shift — both of which have around 2,200 students each.

The building consists of 148 rooms, wheelchair ramps, and an open courtyard in the middle. It has been a long wait for the area’s students who had been travelling by rickshaw to Prahladpur to study for the last three years.

The building was inaugurated by Delhi Education Minister Manish Sisodia. He said, “When I first visited this school, I saw its dilapidated condition and decided it would have to be torn down and reconstructed. I know the past year has been challenging for students and staff while it was being reconstructed… Our aim was to reconstruct this building in such a way that we wouldn’t be in need of another renovation for at least the next 20 years.”

He further added, “Government schools are being shut down across the country today. Thousands of government schools in Maharashtra and Uttarakhand are being shut down, government schools of Uttar Pradesh are being privatised… If a government cannot run government schools, that government should resign… Delhi is the only state where new government schools are being revamped, and parents are taking their kids out of private schools to enrol them in government schools.”
