Mamoosa residents seek establishment of High School

Srinagar, Oct 26: The inhabitants of Mamoosa Pattan have complained that their children were facing immense hardships due to non-availability of a High School in the area.
According to the locals, there are four middle schools in the area. “The children after completing their studies in these educational institutions have to take admission in the schools of the neighbouring villages of Sherpora, Lalpora and Sherabad, which are more than four kilometers from Mamoosa,” the residents said adding the kids were facing immense difficulties in reaching to these educational institutions.
They said lack of transport facility compounds the problems of the students. “I have to travel eight kilometers by foot everyday to fro from the school,” said a ninth class student, Ishfaq Ahmad, who studies at Government High School, Sherpora.
The adverse weather conditions, particularly rainy season, the residents said, increases their problems manifold. “I don’t send my daughter to school on rainy days fearing that she might get sick,” said a local resident, Ghulam Muhammad.
The students, the residents said, faced huge problem last year, after the Government High School Lalpora closed admission for them citing “limited infrastructure in the educational institution” as a reason.
They said the Chief Minister, Omar Abdullah’s promise of upgrading a Middle School in the area, proved a hoax, with authorities failing to take any substantial action in this regard.
“Omar promised us that one of the school’s would be upgraded to secondary level, but there was no implementation on ground,” the residents said.
When contacted, Chief Education Officer (CEO) Baramulla, Ghulam Hassan Ganai said they had already recommended for upgradation of a middle school in the area.
