Through a comprehensive plan, District Administration Bahawalpur has decided to take up the challenge of diverting the attention of youth away from unbridled use of computers, mobiles and other such electronic gadgets; to reintroduce the tradition of sports and other extracurricular activities in schools; to revive the play grounds; to produce athletes and players of international standards; and to promote healthy habits, discipline and sportsman spirit among the youth.
During the recently summer vacations, all playgrounds in schools were rehabilitated. In addition to earmarking 5% of the budget of each public school for sports, central purchase of sports goods/equipment worth 6 million was carried out by the Administration directly from Sialkot to ensure quality and competitive pricing. The long forgotten institution of Physical Training Instructor (PTI) has been revived in schools and 2 periods in each week have been reserved for sports for class V and beyond.
And finally, a grant sports competition, SCHOOLYMPICS, is scheduled to be held for children at the end of each year.
