Good news for students who love to play football as Education Minister announced the construction of a state-of-the-art football field under the title — School of Football Excellence in CR Park during his visit in Delhi Government schools.
He visited SPM Sarvodaya Vidyalaya in CR Park with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj and announced that the football ground will be built to utilise the vast empty space between the old and the newly constructed buildings.
“This is a lot of space, we should do something with it. Let’s develop this as the School of Football Excellence in CR Park,” Sisodia, who is also the Education Minister, said after consultation with the school management committee led by the principal, MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj and the director of education.
