Mogra school awaits proper facilities

Mogra school awaits proper facilities

Due to the negligence of the elected representatives, the Government Higher Primary School in Mogra has been facing a threat of closure, as the number of admissions is depleting year after year.

The school lacks connectivity with the other side of the stream, and students coming from the other side have to cross the stream using a locally made foot bridge to reach the school, and the administration has not done anything for the safety, or transportation of students.

The school is 94 year-old and thousands of children had studied here over the years. There are 30 students from class one to seven in the school. Around 20 students who come from other side of the stream, have to cross the stream to reach the school.

Risky during rains
This becomes risky during heavy rains, as the stream will be in full spate. Due to the problem, the admission has been dwindling year to year. Though it is expected that the parent assist their wards, it could not be materialised.

Most students are from SC/ST communities. During heavy rains, parents have no choice but to avoid sending their wards to school.

The locals have made a footbridge using acera tree logs, but it has grown weak. The school is not linked with any main road, and the school also lacks basic facilities. There are no mobile signals in the region, making it difficult for the parents and the school staff to communicate even during emergencies.

Lokesh Subrahmanya said that it has been a cumbersome task to transport LPG cylinder to the school. Many a times, SDMC members carry the cylinder, or else the teachers themselves have to carry it to the school.

Owing to the negligence of the administration and elected representatives, the school is facing the threat of closure, said the villagers.
