“Students should be moulded with quality education to compete with the best in the world,’ said Mysore University Vice-Chancellor Prof. K. S. Rangappa.

He was speaking after launching the STAR (Standard Training Assessment and Reward) scheme of Sri Jayachamaraja Ursu Education Trust in collaboration with JobSkills Solutions Pvt. Ltd., Bangalore, an initiative of the Union Ministry of Finance and National Skills Development Corporation, at Jaganmohan Palace yesterday.

The objective of the scheme is to encourage skill development for youth by providing monetary rewards by reimbursing the fee on successful completion of approved training programmes.

The event also marked the centenary year of Sri Vani Vilas Ursu Girls School and silver jubilee year of Sri Vani Vilas Ursu Girls Pre-University college.

Trust Patron Srikanta Datta Narasimharaja Wadiayar paid floral tributes and remembered Vani Vilas Sannidhanadavaru, Founder, Sri Vani Vilasa Ursu Girls High School.

Trust President Pramoda Devi Wadiyar, who presided, quoted the words of Jayachamaraja Wadiyar and asked the students to make best use of education facilities available at the school.
