New Delhi, Nov 22 (UNI) The Delhi Government today said it is planning to implement a uniform dress code for government-run schools in the city, a measure aimed at providing a unique identity to these schools.
Talking to reporters here, Education Minister Aravinder Singh said the State government was contemplating to revise the dress code of school uniforms in Sarvodaya and Sarvodaya Pratibha Schools.
''Right now, every government school has a dress of its own, decided by the principal of the school which in turn means that there are thousands of dresses within the government schools depriving them of a distinct identity at state level,'' the Minister said.
To impart a distinct identity to these schools, National Institute of Fashion Technology, the premier fashion institute of India at Hauz Khas, will do the work for designing the dresses.
To start with, the Sarvodaya Pratibha Schools will have their uniform in red hue.
Mr Singh said the new initiative of a Uniform Dress code would also provide an opportunity to take government schools at the forefront.
The Minister said the Delhi Government would take all necessary steps to ensure that poor students in government Schools performed well.
''They should not feel that they are legging behind just because of financial difficult situation of their parents,'' Mr Singh said adding that all students from poor families would be provided geometry box and other educational aids free of cost which would help them in sharpening their minds.
He said this step of the Delhi Government would not only help these sharp minds but will also inculcate in them a scientific temper.
''It will help them nurture their dreams for a better tomorrow.
These students can go for higher studies in later part of their life and earn a reputation for themselves,'' Mr Singh said.
He said the mind of the students should be totally free from worries of funds/money for their further studies and should not be over-burdened with it.
