Dimapur, November 11: Advisor, Urban Development, S I Jamir today said that schools in the entire state needs to be upgraded for which cooperation of teachers and communities are required.

Speaking as the chief guest for the Platinum Jubilee celebration of Government Town Middle School, United Colony, Dimapur, Jamir said the school gets flooded easily causing much inconveniences to the students and teachers, while also hampering education.

He said the condition is known to Chief Minister and steps would be taken within this winter for minimizing the misery during the floods. He also assured that he would do his best as their representative for its development in the days to come.

Congratulating the school administration and faculty on the significant achievement, he said that he has seen the school growing to what it is today and it is time to look forward towards better perspectives.

Previously, SDEO Dimapur T. Kiyelu Yepthomi in his speech said though the school is located in an area which faces regular floods, it has been able to maintain one of the highest enrolment rates and one of the highest pass percentages and expressed that government would take note of the problems of the school.

G. Kits, council chairman, United Colony in his brief address asked the government to take note of the sufferings of the teachers due to shortage of subject teachers particularly mathematics, Hindi and science which has been causing much inconvenience. 

Giving a brief report of the school's history, Head Teacher Megolhubino mentioned that the school has presently 586 students and 25 teaching staffs.

She expressed the need for the school to be upgraded to a high school saying that many students after passing class 8 from the school could not afford further education and the government schools don't have enough accommodation opportunities for all the students which lead to many students dropping out.

The school was established in the year 1942 and over the years have been shifted many a times between its first location where the Public College of Commerce now stands and its present location at United Colony.

Like the locations, the nomenclature of the school has also been changed many times over the years. (Page News Service)
