After several years of studying at a school functioning in a crumbling building, 236 students of Government Primary School, Kundanpuri,have finally been shifted to the government school at 8B Chander Nagar School. The move comes after the district education officer (elementary) Gurjot Singh declared the 70-year-old building unsafe for use and ordered the school to shift its students.

The school has been functioning from the rooms of a local dharamshala for several years now and has been unable to secure grants for the construction of new classrooms.

Take cognizance of the matter, block primary education officer of Mangat 2, Asha Rani, recently wrote to Singh stating that the building was unsafe for use and recommending that it be declared unsafe.

The school at Chander Nagar, which is 1.5 km away from the Kundanpuri school, will now function in two shifts: while its regular students will attend classes in the morning, students of the Kundanpuri school will use the classrooms in the afternoon shift.

Singh said,"We have shifted the students to 8B Chander Nagar as we want to provide safer classrooms to students."
