Pokhara, August 9

As many as 13 schools with no student or less than the minimum number required are all set to be merged in Kaski.

A recent meeting of District Education Committee decided to merge those schools with other nearby schools that have been operating effectively. The meeting headed by the committee’s chairperson and Local Development Officer Damodar Bhandari decided to degrade at least seven schools from grades 1-5 to grades 1-3.

Bikash Jyoti Primary School was merged with Mahendra Primary School of Dhikurpokhari, Dipendra Primary with Hemja Yamdi-based Bal Kalyan Primary School and Saraswoti Primary will be merged with Siddha-based Gaunpharka Secondary School.

Similarly, the committee has decided to merge Bal Bikash Primary school with Kuleshwor Primary of Thumki; Jana Jyoti Primary with Himalaya Secondary School of Mijure and Gyan Jyoti Primary School with Ramkot Secondary School, of Hansapur.

Pragatishil Primary School and Laligurans and Kiran Primary schools will be merged with Bhadaure-based Bahadure Secondary and Krishna Mahadev Lower Secondary schools respectively.

Saraswoti Primary School is all set to be merged with Janajagriti Secondary School of Sarangkot; and Bal Jyoti Primary School with Tundikhel-based Rastriya Secondary School.

The committee has also decided to merge Nabadurga Primary and Dibyashwori Primary School with Ratan Pande Secondary and Kalika-based Siddha Primary schools respectively.

Schools operating with less number of students than the required minimum have been reduced only up to grade three.

Dhikurpokhari-based Saraswoti Primary School, Aranyajyoti Primary School of Lekh Nath, Siddha Primary of Parche, Guranse Primary School of Bhurjungkhola, Janak Primary School of Majhthana and Dayananda Primary school were operating with less number of students than the minimum requirement.

As teachers of schools sans students have been transferred to other schools, the schools with larger number of students have also been been asked to take ownership of the property of schools without enough students.
