Punjab Government schools have launched another initiative to enhance enrollment. This time, the school heads are preparing an attractive, colourful and eye-catching ‘e-prospectus’, highlighting the distinctive features and achievements of the government schools to mobilise the masses to get their wards admitted.
Infrastructural facilities, qualitative improvement in education, excellent results in board examinations, performance of government school students in various competitive exams, cultural, sports and other co-curricular activities, etc. are main features highlighted in these prospectus.
The e-prospectus is being circulated among target sections of society by making use of the vast social media network being created by the education department.
