Students and teachers join hands to develop school



Students and teachers of Government Middle School Sector ‘A’ are seen engaged at work for constructing a room for their school.
 
Wokha, February 11 (MExN): When many of us have been habituated waiting on the Government for developmental works of any kind, especially when it comes to government sectors/projects a group of dedicated teachers had decided to do it all for the sake of the community, particularly the students. A Government Middle School in Wokha Town, which is very rarely remembered, has done whatever it takes as a model for the Nagas and its worth following their example.
Government Middle School Sector ‘A’ which had been upgraded just previous year from Primary level had been hard pressed with a need to provide a room for the students of Class 8 which is practically not available at the moment as the government had not provided any fund for the particular purpose. If they are to wait for government funds then the students of Class 8 may never be able to sit this academic year in a chamber meant for their classroom and so, after a thorough deliberation the teachers decided to contribute money from their own pockets in the form of loan to the School so that with that money they can construct a chamber for the students. They have pulled out all their resources (Cash, kind and labour) and together with the upper class students they’ve started the work which they estimated at a cost of about Rs. 50,000 to RS. 60,000. Students are carrying the cement bags from the shops to the School, taking the boulders to the masons, digging and removing the earth etc and they are more than excited to be able to do something for their School. By March 2012 they will be able to have a new classroom.
Not only for the Schools, but come on, let us not only wait for the government. Let us also do whatever we can for making our land a better place to live.
