Nadupadavu govt school at lacks rooms, teachers

Many government schools have been closed due to shortage of students while others, despite having a good strength, lack basic facilities. The students in Nadupadavu government school are having a tough time, attending classes in a temporary room.

Zilla Panchayat Government Lower Primary School situated at Nadupdavu in Kairangala village in Bantwal taluk was started in 2008-09. The school has t85 students studying in class 1 to 7 one to seven. It has only three classrooms. One of them is the Akshara Dasoha kitchen and due to lack of space, the classes are conducted in the kitchen too. At present, five teachers are serving at the school.

Though class 8 was started in 2009-10, it has been cancelled this year due to shortage of classrooms and teachers. The construction work of a new classroom has stopped abruptly following lack of grants. The demand for extra classrooms has not been fulfilled by the Department of Public Instruction.

The villagers and the School Development and Monitoring Committee members have now built a temporary classroom with coconut leaves and plastic sheets. The students of class 4 are accommodated here.

The villagers said they are fed up of submitting memorandums to the elected representatives to solve the problems at the school. They have urged the government to provide new classrooms for the school.
