Libraries will also be set up at all primary schools beside construction of 60,000 new classrooms

Primary and Mass Education Secretary Md Akram-al-Hossain has said all primary schools will be brought under midday meal coverage in phases.

Magura District Primary Education Office organized the mother’s rally on “Development of moral values and ensuring of quality education.”

“Under school feeding policy, all primary schools will be brought under midday meal coverage for enhancing quality of education alongside improving nutritional status of children,” he said on Saturday.

Director General of Directorate of Primary Education Dr AFM Manzur Qadir, Deputy Commissioner Md Ali Akbar, officials and representatives of local government bodies, among others, addressed the rally with district Primary Education Officer Kumaresh Chandra Gachir in the chair.

The secretary said libraries named “Bangabandhu Book Corner” will be set up at all primary schools beside construction of 60,000 new classrooms.

The Mass and Primary Education Ministry sources said the midday meal will have to meet 30% calories and 50% micronutrient of the primary school students aged 3 to 12 years.

As many as 14 million students from 66,000 government primary schools across the country will be provided with midday meals by 2023 which will require Tk2,835 crore per year to provide fortified biscuits to the students, Tk5,560 crore to provide cooked foods in five days and biscuits in one day and Tk7,475 crore to provide egg, banana and bread.
