International Literacy Day celebrated

SHIKARPUR:09 september: The District Education Officer (Elementary) Shikarpur took out a rally from Government Primary School Lakhidar Shikarpur to the Shikarpur Press Club on Friday to mark the International Literacy Day.

The rally was led by Abdul Hameed Soomro, DEO Elementary Shikarpur, and other Education Department officers.

Speaking on the occasion, leaders said that International Literacy Day gives great opportunity to reiterate our resolve to ongoing commitment of the world community to recognise and support literacy as a key to personal development.

Furthermore, they said that children were demanding their right to education, the right which is guaranteed by the government and the United Nations, for which "we at our end have to give them free of cost quality education".

Nadeem Ahmed Sheikh, district coordinator, LSU/RSU, said that on this day every child should make a commitment of bringing a child to school. "This is how they can play their role to minimise the ratio of out-of-school children."
