DIMAPUR —The Naga Tribal Union Chümoukedima Town (NTUCT) lauded the school administrator, faculty, and students of Govt. Higher Secondary School Chümoukedima Town for achieving excellent results in the recently held HSLC and HSSLC exams. However, the union also raised concerns about the government’s neglect of the school.

In a letter of appreciation, the NTUCT highlighted that the dedication of the teachers and the hardworking attitude of the students have deeply influenced the people of Chümoukedima and noted that this positive impact is expected to foster a more favourable attitude among the general public towards government schools in Nagaland.

The union, however, urged the government of Nagaland and the respective department responsible to promptly address the difficulties and challenges faced by GHSS Chümoukedima.

Providing an overview of the school’s history since its inception, NTUCT stated that GHSS Chümoukedima originally functioned as a middle school under the patronage of ONGC. The Department of School Education assumed control of the school, elevating it to a high school in 1983. Subsequently, in 2007, it was further upgraded to a higher secondary school.

Despite the upgrades, the school still lacks the necessary infrastructure suitable for a higher secondary institution. NTUCT noted that although the school recently inaugurated its science stream, it is still without a laboratory and other essential buildings. The school authorities have made repeated requests for a new building due to the current one being on the verge of collapse and posing safety risks. However, these requests have not received any positive responses thus far.

The school has experienced a consistent increase in enrollment each year, presenting a challenge for the school administrator in accommodating the growing number of students due to insufficient classrooms. With classes ranging from A to 12, the total enrollment exceeds 1000 students.

NTUCT has hailed it as a remarkable achievement to witness the school’s performance in the HSSLC, with 100 percent of the students passing, solely in the first and second divisions. Additionally, Ilamguale A Zeliang secured the 5th rank in the HSSLC Arts topper list.

It stated that the results will hopefully go a long way in dispelling the public stigma attached to government-run schools in Nagaland.

Maintaining that government schools today have the best teachers and administrators, and if provided with the right infrastructure, the stage is set to usher in a new era of education where government schools can perform at par, if not better than most private schools, the union noted that Ilamguale is an exceptionally hard-working individual and that she is being assisted by the school in pursuing her dream of becoming an IAS officer.

“The school authorities are engaged with Tetso College to assist her with being granted a full scholarship until she graduates,” it said, adding that with the right guidance and support, they can look forward to more Ilamguales in the future of Govt Schools of Nagaland.

It may be mentioned that in 2022, Tianaro Kichu from the school was ranked 8th in the HSSLC Arts results.
