Baramulla: Three years ago the government middle school (GMS) Abora in Tangmarg area of north Kashmir’s Baramulla district was damaged in flashfloods but repairs have not been carried out after the students of the school were shifted to high school Abora.
Locals said that a portion of GMS Abora was completely damaged when a gush of water from nearby stream hit it. The students were in the school that time.
After the school building was badly damaged, the officials of the education department visited the site and decided to shift the students to nearby school. The original students of GMS complain that the influx of more students created problems for them. “Shortage of accommodation and teaching staff is the biggest problem. It has made students of both schools to suffer,” he said.
Shahida, a student said that with three teachers in the school to teach hundreds of students, the quality of education has suffered. She appealed to the higher authorities of education department to arrange more teachers for the school. Chief education officer (CEO) Baramulla Abdul Latif Wani said that he would look into the matter and try to resolve it in immediate future.
