‘Edu-fair sharing right information’
May 20, 2014-The second Kantipur Hissan Edu Fair 2014, jointly organised by Kantipur Media Group and Higher Secondary Schools’ Association Nepal (Hissan), formally concluded on Tuesday.
Speaking at the event, Member Secretary of Higher Secondary Education Board (HSEB) Bhim Lal Gurung said the fair helped disseminating the right information to the public.
As well as bringing the entire higher secondary colleges under one roof, the event helped curb the unhealthy competition among the colleges, said Gurung.
“As the government alone cannot deliver quality education in the developing countries like Nepal, it is important for the private sector to share the burden to impart quality education,” he added.
He urged the stakeholders to hold such fairs at regional level too. The
fair which began on Thursday and concluded on Sunday drew 225,000
students and parents.
According to Ramesh Silwal, vice-chairman of Hissan and the event coordinator, the fair has put a message across: domestic schools and colleges are capable of providing international standard education.
He said the event this year pulled in more participation than last year and will grow in coming years too. Around 90 academic institutions from across the country participated in the educational fair.
