Muslim Islamic NewsUrdu in missionary school

The Milli Gazette

Agra: Saint Marks School, Agra has opened a new chapter in its history when it started regular teaching of Urdu in its classes. Dr Shafiq Ashrafi, President of Urdu Department of St. Johnson College here says that in Agra schools, arrangements for teaching of Urdu are just for name sake. Under such conditions starting of Urdu teaching classes is a laudable step. Earlier, the syllabus of Urdu books from class 1 to class 8th was inaugurated and a set of 8 Urdu books was released by Dr Shafiq Ashrafi. Principal of the school said on this occasion that this school was started in 1991 and at present there are about 900 boy and girl student in it of whom about 280 students have offered Urdu as optional subject. This is the first English medium Convent School in Agra where arrangements have been made for teaching of Urdu as an optional subject.
