Taking a note of the Hindustan Times report, the district education officer, secondary, has written to Government Model Senior Secondary School, Miller Ganj, principal Barjinder Kaur to run the school in double shifts and move the students of Class 1 to 7 to the main building.

Talking to the Hindustan Times, the school principal said, “The public works department had declared 13 classrooms in our school as unsafe, which are mainly occupied by around 300 students. As the rainy season is approaching, we had written to the district education officer, secondary, about the conditions of the classrooms and on their direction we have shifted the students of Class 1 to 7 to the main building and the school has been running on double shifts since Monday”.

Kaur added, “The students of Class 1 to 10 are having their morning shift from7 am to 12 noon and for Class 11 and 12 the afternoon shift is from 12.30 pm to 5.30 pm. We have also given in writing to the Rashtriya Madhyamik Shiksha Abhiyan (RMSA) to provide us grants to construct 17 new classrooms.”

Hindustan Times had highlighted the issue on July 2 that the students were in a lurch after 13 classrooms were declared unsafe.
Meanwhile, a primary school that comes under a block primary education office and not under GMSSS-Miller Ganj is also functioning from here and has occupied eight classrooms of the school.
