Chief Minister Pawan Chamling inaugurates Namchi School's hostel

Message of HCM, Shri Pawan Chamling on the inaugural function of newly built boy’s and girl’s hostels at Government Senior Secondary School and Namchi Girls Senior Secondary School at Namchi, South Sikkim.

I extended my best wishes to the principals of both Government Senior Secondary School and Namchi Girls Senior Secondary School for acquiring the new structures. The present State Government’s relentless efforts in uplifting the society and the state by introducing developmental projects in spheres such as education, health care, tourism, commerce & industry, technology, agriculture and animal husbandry, manufacturing and food industry. I sought the participation of the educated and intellectual class in contributing substantially for the holistic development of Sikkim that puts the state at par with the other developed first world nations of the world. 

I emphasized the need for students to encompass a wide-range of knowledge and skills which is relevant, constructive, in-demand and universally applicable to face the competitive challenges of the 21st century. Education has always been a priority of the present State Government and that there are ample amount of schemes and policies in the education sector particularly for the students belonging to economically weaker background. I The various schemes under the present state government such as free education upto college level, free post doctorate education for the BPL students in central universities, educational funding of students under the CMMS scheme for students who are academically proficient. The need for life oriented and value-based learning in the school curriculum as it stimulates mental and emotional growth within the students.

The state sponsored free coaching programs for IAS, NDA and other Allied Service for the Sikkimese students and urged them to tap maximum potential out of such opportunities. Speaking to the youth centric crowd, I urged them to imbibe special interest in subjects such as Mathematics and Pharmacy as it offers them a greater scope to acquire employment in the future. I also proposed varied ways and means for the youth to generate income for themselves in an attempt to make their skills commercially viable particularly through Organic Farming.
