Hyderabad: The Mahatma Jyothibha Phule Telangana Backward Classes Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society is planning to set up specialised schools for training its students in cricket, art, music and dance.
The State government has already sanctioned 119 new Mahatma Jyothibha Phule Telangana Backward Classes Welfare Residential and the Society intends to establish one school for imparting cricket and another for training students in art, music and dance, besides regular academics.
These schools are likely to come up on the outskirts of Hyderabad from the next academic year. Students who are passionate about cricket, art, music and dance will be given admission into the school after a preliminary test.
The Telangana Social Welfare Residential Educational Institutions Society has already established cricket academy and social welfare school for fine arts which tasted success.
“There are plans to set up a specialised school for training students in cricket, arts, music and dance. Already, the existing schools have provided with music instruments and there is huge potential among students which needs to be tapped,” an official said.
Not just for schools and junior colleges, there is also demand for establishment of new BC Welfare Degree Colleges. The only existing BC Welfare Degree College for Women witnesses huge competition with 8,000 applications for 240 seats in various courses.
