Budgam, Oct 14: The Government High School in Central Kashmir’s Hayatpora Chadoora of District Budgam was established in 1984, this is the only High School in the jurisdiction of near about 12 native villages, which include Hayatpora, Tangnar, Dardpora, Malpora, Zagipora, Charwane, Sarie, Dramshal, Qazipora, Wadipora, Wanpora and Kral Chek.
The Class role in the school is very high but unfortunately from 1984 the High School has not been upgraded to Higher Secondary School, which is a much needed demand of the area.
The area is lacking Higher Secondary school and the students of these areas have to move 3 to 4 kilometers for studying in Higher Secondary School.
The students of these areas need to go either at Higher Secondary School Nagam Chadoora or Higher Secondary School Charar-i-Sharief ,which consumes a lot of time and money of students living in far areas.
The people of the area said, “Though the High School was established in 1984 but still it has not been upgraded which is quite unacceptable and the worst part is this that the administration is turning blind eyes towards our much needed demand of Higher Secondary School in our area”
The locals of the area also requested the Director School Education and higher authorities to pay attention towards their genuine demands so that the children especially female students from many areas need not to move to 4 kilometers for their studies.
The locals of the area alleged that the major drawback of non availability of higher secondary school is the main case of student drop out especially female students, as they prefer to stay at home rather moving to higher secondary school which falls away from their villages.
The locals requested the School Education Department and Governor administration for redressal of their demand.
