Bajura, October 8

Nepali Army personnel are constructing a school building for Dwarika Primary School in Badimalika Municipality, Bajura.

The NA team from the Martadi-based Samarjit Battalion has taken initiative to construct the school building after the school faced problems running regular classes for the want of classrooms.

As many as 30 NA personnel have been deployed for the construction work. Major Bishnu Sapkota at the battalion said that the NA team was deployed for the social work as per the slogan ‘NA with people’. He informed that school building with three rooms would be completed and handed over to the school administration by Tihar.

“We took the initiatives after the daily activities of the school were adversely affected due to lack of building,” he added. Major Sapkota said the NA team had started the work with permission from the authority concerned and the community. “We will also manage furniture for the school,” he informed.

Meanwhile, the school head teacher Amar Bishwokarma said District Education Office and other non-governmental organisations had taken no initiatives even after making requests for the construction of the school building time and again. “The teaching learning activities will run smoothly after the completion of the building,” he added.

As many as 25 students have been studying at the school. A source at the school informed that there was not even a single teacher appointed from the government quota.

The source added that two teachers were appointed from school’s own resources. The head teacher said that the students were compelled to attend classes on the floor due to lack of furniture.
