Anganwadis to turn play schools

Education NewsAdilabad: The Telangana state government has plans to convert anganwadi centres in village and towns into play schools, under the KG to PG free education scheme. Further, kinder garten sections (LKG and UKG) in English medium will be introduced in the government schools. The officials are working out on modialities to convert anganwadi centres into play schools. For this, the anganwadi centres will be transferred to the education department from the ICDS in health department. In the play schools, the kids would be provided with quality nutritional food, toys and play things.

That apart, the centres would also have the interiors decorated with cartoon characters painted on the walls and other festoons hung from the ceilings. Gardens would also be grown in the open spaces at the centres, wherever it is possible.

Teacher MLC Pula Ravinder said the state government would convert the anganwadi centres into play schools from the next academic year. Efforts are on to make the education system equip Telangana students to face global competition, he said. He said, “Uniform education system will be introduced in Telangana like in America where both a senator’s child and common man’s child study in the same government school.”

The state government is planning to introduce KG to PG free education from the next academic year. The state is of the opinion that it would be good to introduce English medium in government schools from pre-primary sections in view of the increasing demand. As many as 3,540 anganwadi centres are functioning under 18 ICDS projects in Adilabad district and only 40 per cent of these are running in government buildings. The remaining are housed on rented premises.
