The resolution said that in each of the NDMC schools, there are teachers to teach all the subjects, whereas there is no provision for sports or physical education teacher in any of the corporation run schools due to which children feel deprived of the sport activities.

 

The proposal claimed that for the children studying in every private schools of Delhi, classes are conducted for various sports for their physical development in addition to their studies and for this purpose, they appoint sports or physical education teachers.

The chairman of the NDMC standing committee, Parvesh Wahi, said that by providing sports teachers, the corporation, besides providing bookish knowledge to students, is also identifying sporting talent among children that can be nurtured to make them future stars. “By identifying sporting talent at an early stage, we may be creating a future Olympic medallist or cricket star. These sports teachers also help in the overall development of children in our school,” added Mr Wahi.

 

The NDMC runs around 750 schools in which around 3.5 lakh children are studying. As per the plan, 750 sports teachers will be engaged for NDMC schools.

One teacher is to be posted in each school. A senior official said that modalities of the appointment of the sports teachers, whether contractual or permanent, would be decided in a couple of week.
