HP Launches ‘My School-My Pride’ Campaign to Transform Govt Education System

Himachal Pradesh has launched the ‘My School-My Pride’ campaign under the ‘Apna Vidyalay’ programme, aligning with the National Education Policy (NEP)-2020.

The initiative aims to actively involve individuals and organizations in adopting schools and contributing to various aspects of students’ growth. Stakeholders are encouraged to provide career counseling, offer remedial teaching, coach students for examinations, and engage in community support services. Monetary contributions are also sought for infrastructure development, event sponsorship, scholarships, and support for the Mid-Day Meal (MDM) programme.

Under the ‘Giving back to society’ initiative, retired teachers, professionals, housewives, or any member of the society are urged to join the academic support team, providing teaching services without payment. This ensures continuous academic support during teacher shortages or leaves. Non-academic teams will contribute to sports, co-curricular activities, skill training, arts, and more.

Dignitaries, Members of Parliament, MLAs, and government officers are encouraged to adopt government schools as patrons, suggesting improvements and staying informed about students’ progress. The Samagra Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) will launch an online portal dedicated to the Apna Vidyalaya programme, ensuring transparency, accountability, and real-time monitoring of activities.

The holistic approach includes the ‘systematic adolescent management and value addition dialogue’ (SAMVAD) component, educating school-going adolescents on moral values, drug awareness, nutrition, legal knowledge, and empowerment schemes.

Chief Minister Sukhvinder Singh Sukhu expressed, “Our government is working with the motto of Vyavastha Parivartan, and the Apna Vidyalaya programme aims to foster civic duty, strengthen school vision, and create a sustainable model for educational improvement.”

This initiative offers hope for the public education system, serving over 55% of students in government schools in Himachal Pradesh. The ‘My School-My Pride’ campaign is expected to bring about a positive transformation, emphasizing community engagement and mentoring for educational enhancement.
