CEC Phangsang appeals authority to renovate school building
Dimapur, Dec. 8 (EMN): The Community Education Committee (CEC), Phangsang, under Chuchuyimlang EAC Circle in Mokokchung district has expressed distress at what it termed the pathetic condition of the Phangsang Government Primary School (GPS) building and appealed to the concerned authorities to renovate the school at the earliest.
Secretary of CEC Phangsang, Temjenmangyang Jamir, in a press release, said that the students and the teachers have had to undergo a lot of hardships throughout the academic years because of the ‘ramshackle school building.’
He said that rainwater leaks through the roof and also through the holes ‘in the decaying bamboo walls’ that flood the classrooms as well as the teachers’ common room.
During winter, ‘the cool air’ and the ‘outside noise’ make it very inconvenient for teaching and learning process, he rued.
“Under such dire circumstances, the GPS Phangsang has been functioning for many years much to the distress of the CEC Phangsang, parents and the teachers as well,” said Jamir.
He said that the GPS Phangsang was merged with Government High School, Phangsang vide order NO.ED/STAT/32/ Rationalisation/2016. However, the present Government High School building does not have the capacity or enough classrooms to accommodate all the students i.e. the students of the primary students and secondary students.
In view of the above stated circumstances, CEC Phangsang ‘ardently’ urged upon the concerned authority to look into the matter so that the children can enjoy their schooling inside well-furnished classrooms “which, after all, is the right of school children in the state.”
It also stated that it would be prudent for the concerned authority to renovate the school building during the holiday period as the academic session has come to an end.
