New Delhi : Delhi Chief Minister Shiela Dikshit Wednesday said that city schools had a large role to play in making the forthcoming Commonwealth Games a success by “inculcating right values” in children to play a good host.
“Principals must inculcate right values with correct information in children and in fellow teachers, so that Delhi would become a wonderful host for 52 visiting nations of the world,” Dikshit said while addressing the annual conference of principals/heads of department of Delhi government schools at Vigyan Bhawan here.
