Remote school running classes under makeshift tent

KHOTANG: A primary school at Kulabhanyjang in Khotehang Rural Municipality-4 in the district has been running regular classes under makeshift tent after a windstorm blew away the roof four months ago.

The Shivathan Primary School faced the nature's wrath on April 1.

According to the Principal Prakash Phuyal, the school administration has been running multiple classes under the makeshift.

"It is the time of monsoon and the daily rainfall has created a big problem," said Phuyal adding "As we do not have the economic source to repair the structure, we have been forced to continue classes under tents."

The school management committee said that it received Rs 25,000 from the Khotang District Education Office for repairing the damages incurred in the windstorm.

The school infrastructure also suffered damages during the devastating earthquake in 2015.

The school runs classes up to Grade V with a total enrollment of 62 students.
