AFTER PROVIDING cycles and shoes to school children, Education Minister Partha Chatterjee on Monday said his department was mulling distributing equipment to play games in primary schools.
“In around 10,000 primary schools which have a ground, we are thinking of installing swings, slides and see-saws. A public company has already been engaged for the purpose,” Chatterjee said during the Question Hour in the Assembly.

Speaking on hiring non-teaching staff members for schools which so far were being looked after by the governing bodies, the minister said a central committee would hire the employees.
Meanwhile, the department was also likely to transfer professors from one government-aided college to another where there was a staff crunch. Moreover, while answering queries by Congress MLA Manas Bhunia, Chatterjee brushed aside the possibility of raising the retirement age of government employees from 60 years to 65 years.
