The Punjab Chief Minister said the school would
be built on 8 acre campus and and more schools will be set up
with public-private participation.
He also promised to make it a model school under
the state government's newly launched plan for "Adarsh"
schools. The concept of the Adarsh school is very clear- to provide
free education to the bright and poor students to ensure them
a level playing field in the sphere of education. Three such schools
have been already set up - one freedom fighter Bhagat Singh's
villiage Khatkar Kalan, second Tohra and third in Talwandi Sabo.
