NAUNDERO: The building condition of Government Boys High School, Panjudero, near here, has become worst where 370 little students from class VI to X are enrolled and their lives are in extreme danger along with those of the teachers and other staff.
A visit to the school on Wednesday showed that the education department has completely ignored this school as if it is not their responsibility to provide congenial atmosphere to the sons of tax payers to exercise their right to education. Classrooms, walls, teachers room, washrooms, corridors even the front look of the building looked like the ruins of Mohenjo Daro. Most of the parents have shifted their kids from this school to Naundero as they must be afraid of their well being. Roof of the building has become so dangerous that cemented bars keep on falling down almost daily due to which few classrooms have been shut which look like that these rooms have been handed over to vampire.
On hearing the news of Media team arrival in the school Director Schools, Larkana region, Noor Jahan Abbasi, came there, saw the plight of the school building herself and inquired from the injured students. She said that she is extremely worried about the school condition and undertook that students will soon be shifted to other schools till new building is constructed. Manzoor Mangi, Head Master of the school told Reporters that the school was constructed in 1995 and since then no repair or renovation work has been carried out due to which the building has become very dangerous for students.
He said due to water logging & salinity because of paddy crop sowing all around this school, building should be carefully constructed having special building material otherwise it will also not last long. Mangi demanded earth filling before construction of new building and provision of other basic necessities such as cold drinking water facility, proper washrooms, new furniture, computers, science material and proper boundary wall. He said teachers and students have been injured in the past due to cement bars sudden falling over them. When the government is taking notice of this school is yet to be seen.
