All the amenities are on par with the business schools in the renovated school buildings. Under the public and private (Divis) partnership, the school was established by spending Rs 3 crore.
Instead of studying subjects for the purpose of jobs, IT and Municipal Administration Minister KT Rama Rao wanted students to acquire knowledge through education.
Speaking on the occasion, Rama Rao said Telangana was the only state that, by setting up 945 residential schools, provided quality education to poor students. A sum of Rs 1.25 lakh is spent on each student per annum.
Surprisingly, there were national level ranks for students seeking education in welfare schools. Telangana is the only state to offer a Rs 29 lakh education loan to foreign countries to pursue higher studies. Students can also participate in sporting activities in addition to schooling to promote physical as well as mental health, Minister recommended.
Speaking about Sircilla ZP High School, Rama Rao argued that since it was built with modern facilities under public and private partnership, the school earned corporate level recognition.
In addition to 39 classrooms and a computer lab, a large dining hall was also built to ensure that 400 students had meals at once. ZP School, which was established in 1960, groomed scores of individuals. In the school, corporate-level facilities were built with the aid of philanthropists.
According to Rama Rao, Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao wanted to establish such schools across the state. (INN)
