Keekli Bureau, February, 2020
In a meeting organised by the district administration for organising transport of private school students, renowned Loreto Convent Tara Hall tied up for 15 buses whereas another school Chelsea refused to buy or tie up for any transport. In the agreement Loreto Convent has tied with a taxi operator to supply them 15 yellow buses which shall be used to drop the girls to and fro from homes. This exercise was follow up of a government order last year, whereby schools were instructed to buy their own transport.
DAV Public School, New Shimla, tied with private bus operators for four buses, Auckland stated that they have organised one bus and St Edwards claimed to have organised two buses till date.
The only school Chelsea which refused to organise any buses claims that the roads leading to their school are too tight and transport through buses was not possible.
The meeting with schools was organised under the chairmanship of SDM Urban Neeraj Chandla.
