Itagar, May 28: The oldest Government Higher Secondary School here built way back in the year 1952 is grappling with multifaceted issues thanks to chronic illegal land encroachment, dilapidated school building, shortage of classes and teaching faculties.
Of late, school principal, Eving Lego worried over the infested infrastructure and unhealthy surroundings lamented, “A lot needs to be done to run the school properly and completely. The entire building is trickling with water during rains some rooms are even termite infested while some of them are on the verge of collapse.” “The entire staff quarter areas are being illegally encroached and we have approached the authority concerned to interfere immediately to check the wrong practices,” he added. Lego who is also an alumnus of the school has made up his mind to contribute something to revive the school’s old glory during his last leg of services.
The principal expressed hope that after chief minister Kalikho Pul’s visit to the district on May 21 last all necessary support to revitalize the infrastructures would be done as assured. Further adding that the chief minister has asked the administration to prepare proposal for a complete makeover of the school building, Lego proposed for a RCC double storied structure replacing the decayed SPT building. Being one of the oldest school in Aruchal, the chief minister during his visit had credited to the school of having produced top bureaucrats of the state and asked the school authority to maintain its reputation.
