IMPHAL: On this Children’s Day, students of Class IV-VIII of government schools will get to enjoy a helicopter ride and explore the beautiful landscapes and great landmarks of Manipur.
Under the aegis of Education Minister Thokchom Radheshyam, the department of education (School) with the funding from Samagra Shiksha State Implementing Society Manipur, is going to provide an opportunity for a ‘Helicopter Ride’ to the students studying in Classes IV – VIII of government schools.
For the students to be able to enjoy the ‘Helicopter Ride’ they have to take part in a Zone-wise competition to be organised by the zonal education officers concerned in their respective districts or zones during the month of November. The competition will be carried out in two categories from Classes IV-V and from Classes VI-VIII.
The winners of these competitions will take the ride. For each zone, only 10 representatives inclusive of eight students, one teacher or guide and one representative of ZEO, can be recommended.
The zone-wise competitions will be held under the broad theme ‘Know Your State’ in different literary activities of extempore speech, quiz or story telling of other communities or in any other way to help the children explore and understand the state better. Topics of the competition will be based on information and matters related to the state.
The Helicopter Ride will commence from November 14, on Children’s Day. The opportunity is being provided to the children for exploring the beautiful landscapes and other landmarks of the State. Each Helicopter ride will be of 20 minute duration. (DIPR)
