Bhubaneswar, Aug 9: In an initiative to enhance primary education, the School and Mass Education Department is set to transform the classroom environment for more than 15,000 government primary schools. 

The project aims to create a favourable setting that cultivates Fundamental Literacy and Numeracy (FLN) skills among the primary students. A total investment of Rs 92.85 crore will be spent for this.

The first phase of this transformative initiative covers 6,159 schools, with plans to include all remaining primary schools in subsequent phases. The mission seeks to foster interest, curiosity, and enthusiasm within the tender minds of young students by creating engaging and attractive classroom environments.

To bring this initiative to life, various features will be introduced such as colorful desks, vibrant murals, and various Teaching-Learning-Materials (TLM). Wall paintings, diverse-shaped desks, cupboards, green boards, display boards, and hooks for hanging educational equipment will be incorporated to enrich the learning experience. Benches for seating, essential classroom repairs, electrification, lighting, and arrangements for the display of teaching materials will also be made to ensure a comfortable and stimulating learning space.

Recognizing that primary education forms the bedrock upon which higher education is built, the initiative aims to bolster the foundation by prioritizing FLN programmes. These programmes have been designed to equip every student with proficiency in language and mathematics. Specialized frameworks for curriculum development, engaging learning materials, teacher capacity building and assessment models have been devised to ensure the successful attainment of these goals.

A total of 15,776 government primary schools in 16 districts have been selected for the development of FLN-friendly (Foundation Literacy and Numeracy) classrooms during the academic year 2023-24.
