Guru Nanak Fifth Centenary School inaugurated the project, Jagriti, “Ignite Minds Awaken Souls”. For the third year, more than 700 students registered themselves for special coaching classes.
The Jagriti project was inaugurated by former MLA Jot Singh Gunsola and Dean ND Sawhney by lighting the ceremonial lamp at a programme held in the Nagar Palika Auditorium.
Mr. Sunil Bakshi, Administrative Officer of GNFCS, said that the purpose of Jagriti Project was to teach talented children of various local schools from Mussoorie and nearby areas. It was a mission much beyond education; he added that for the last two years, the school management had undertaken to provide free coaching to the students of financially weaker sections of society studying in various school of Mussoorie. Last year, 747 students of 14 schools of Mussoorie and surrounding areas benefited. After the enthusiastic response of the students last year and their desire to study further, School Chairman S. Jaspal Singh decided to continue Project Jagriti, every year.
Shri Gunsola appreciated the project and praised the efforts of GNFCS teachers and management for undertaking it. Dean Mrs. ND Sawhney disclosed that, this year again, a well managed blueprint had been prepared for conducting classes. All students were given a choice to choose their centers and accordingly classes would be held. Many school principals of Mussoorie and eminent social personalities of the region have enthusiastically supported Jagriti. Considering the large numbers of students, three centers had been opened at Guru Nanak Fifth Centenary School Shangri-la, Saraswati Shishu Mandir and Government School, Doodhli.
All present were thanked by GNFCS Principal Mr. Anil Tewari. The inauguration ceremony ended with distribution of free notebooks and stationery.
Present on the occasion were Anuj Tayal, Principal RN Bhargav Inter College, EO DS Rana, Mrs. Shashi Rawat, Mrs. Poonam Gupta, Mr. Ravinder Goyal, GNFCS Headmasters Mr. Kuldeep Tyagi, S. Harbans Singh and others.
