PUNE: “We want to build a new Maharashtra and set up eminent schools where every student should get the privilege of receiving a quality education. Our education system should help pique curiosity in students and encourage practical learning rather than rote-learning,” said Aditya Thackeray, Minister of Tourism and Environment, Government of Maharashtra.
He was speaking during the foundation stone-laying ceremony of Chatrabhuj Narsee School, a Cambridge and IBDP school at Amanora Township in Hadapsar.

“For the past 8 months, I have been only inaugurating Covid centers across the state and this is for the first time in those 8 months I am inaugurating a school, which is a place of hope and positivity and I am grateful and happy about it,” said Thackeray.
Speaking on the occasion, Sharad Pawar said, “Post Covid, the way schools operate will undergo a change, which needs to be considered while designing and operating schools. It must be in sync with the guidelines set up by the state government.”
