Performance of rural govt schools improving: Goa Board chairman

CURCHOREM: Chairman of Goa Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Ramkrishna Samant said that performance of students from government high schools in rural areas at SSC examination used to be dismal, but it is not the same now.

He said 23 government high schools in Goa, including the Neturlim government high school, have achieved hundred per cent results at the last SSC examination.

He was speaking as a chief guest at a programme organised by newly-formed Lt Shashikant Shiva Gaonkar Memorial Trust to felicitate students who passed SSC examination. Teachers and headmasters were also honoured on the occasion.  The function was organised at Srisan Plaza hall in Sanguem.

Principal of CTN Higher Secondary School, Curchorem, Vaman Bhadri, Sanguem municipality chairperson Rumaldo Fernandes, chairman of the trust Luvkush Naik, member Radha Gaonkar, sarpanch of Vadem Curdi village panchayat Sanjog Pai, Ugem sarpanch Sanjai Parwar, Neturlim sarpanch Rajani Gaonkar, Molcornem sarpanch Livonara Fernandes, Cavrem Pirla sarpanch Laxmi Dessai and Sanguem MLA Prasad Gaonkar graced the function.

In his speech, MLA Gaonkar said though he has concentrated on various developmental works in the constituency, he wants to pay special attention to the educational field as well. “If students become successful in their life it will be good not only for them, but also for the constituency,” he said.

The trust will undertake various socio-cultural programmes for the benefit of the people in the constituency. A committee will be constituted to monitor various programmes that will be organised, he added.

Principal Vaman Bhadri, in his speech, said it is a first programme wherein all the SSC students, teachers and headmasters of high schools in the Sanguem constituency are being felicitated.

He said today education has become very complex, as it involves competition and struggle. He advised the students to stay away from mobiles and trends and achieve excellence in education to lead a successful life.

SMC chairperson Rumaldo Fernandes and social worker Manodai Fadte also spoke on the occasion.

In all, 421 SSC students of 6 government high schools and 4 aided high schools were felicitated. Also, the students, who excelled in various subjects, and the teachers, who were responsible for their excellence, and headmasters of all high schools were felicitated.
