STBB authorities to ensure timely availability of textbooks

Karachi:May 8:The chairman of the District Municipal Corporation(DMC Central), Rehan Hashmi, has urged the Sindh Text Book Board (STBB) authorities to ensure timely availability of textbooks pertaining to the approved curriculum for the fresh academic year.

Addressing on Monday a ceremony to distribute free curriculum-related material among students registered with KMC schools in the district, he said that the delay in the availability of books led to a loss of precious time of the young learners.

”Special attention is needed to be taken to ensure that approved textbooks reach the students in general at the right time,” he said, reiterating that the DMC-Central was committed to providing textbooks to the underprivileged children.

Hashmi said that education was the basic right of each and every child in the country and the DMC Central realising its responsibility had worked hard to provide quality education to the kids enrolled with the DMC -Central schools. “This therefore should be a matter of no surprise that many of these institutions are now at par with reputable schools working in the private sector,” he said.The news.
