Govt scholl girls forced to perform duty of sweepers

SIALKOT: Instead of appointing the school’s own sweepers, the management of the Government Girls Primary School Gull Bahaar Khurd-Sialkot has forced the innocent minor girl students to perform the duties of the sweepers by cleaning the filth in and around the school premises.

The innocent students had been doing this “forced” practice for the last two and half years. This entire situation was totally negating the tall claims of Punjab government “Come and see , how, we have been promoting the quality education”.

School management claimed that this school was a child friendly school, but it was not child friendly school. The parents of the students said that the school management daily deputes several minor girl students on this “duty” for a day, as they have to keep the entire school building and its surrounding streets clean for the whole day.

They added that this nasty practice is repeated every day with other school students turn by turn. The perturbed parents strongly criticized the school management and alleged that they had repeatedly brought this nasty situation to the school management, urging it to appoint the regular sweepers in the school, instead of making the innocent minor students as sweepers.

They said that they sent their girls/ daughters to school for getting education and not for sweeping. They urged the Punjab Chief Minister Muhammad Shahbaz Sharif, Commissioner Gujranwala Division Khawaja Shamail Ahmed, Sialkot DCO Nadeem Sarwar and Sialkot EDO (Education) Muhammad Saleem Khan to look into the matter.

When contacted, the school management admitted they were taking this forced duty from the girl students for the last two and half years , as the school had no its own sweeper since then.

The school management claimed that they had repeatedly brought this nasty situation into the notice of the high ups of the Sialkot education department , but no recruitment or appointment of any regular sweeper had yet been made.
