Fairs affect education of students in Jajarkot

JAJARKOT: A fair being held on the premises of the Tribhuvan Higher Secondary School in district headquarters, Khalanga, has affected the education of students here.

The fair that started from December 27 has disrupted the school activities of around 2,000 students from grade 6 to 12 of the school.

The schools of Bheri municipality and adjoining VDCs are almost closed due to fair. The closure of educational institutions in the district has put the regular curricular activities of students in limbo.

Man Bahadur Malla, a 10th grader of the School said that December-January is the time when the curricular course moves smoothly but the fair and the political programmes during the period has taken toll on their educational pursuit.
