Dilapidated school building poses risk

OUR CORRESPONDENT, Jhenidah
Dilapidated school building poses risk

More than 100 young children, who are studying at Charbaghini Government School in Sailkupa upazila in Jhenidah, are attending classes everyday in a dilapidated school building. The teachers of the school, too, are attending classes regularly there, and said they fear for their lives.

The primary education department in Jhenidah is not even aware of the pitiable condition of the building of the primary school in Sailkupa upazila.

Charbaghini Government School under Abaipur union of Sailkupa was established by locals in 1993 on a total of 63 decimals of land belonging to the local elite. The school was initially started in a semi-pucca tin-shed house. The Local Government Engineering Department (LGED) later constructed a four-room building.

But the school building soon rapidly started suffering damage because of the use of substandard construction materials and the lack of proper supervision by the authorities. Pieces of plaster from the roof and walls started falling and the beams got bent within a few years. Rainwater soaks into it during the monsoon. Both students and teachers suffer from the leakage of rainwater. The entire school building was declared unfit more than two years back.

But the school authorities, who have no other alternative, have been continuing academic activities in the dilapidated building with more than 100 minor students. Locals said there is no alternative to the school in the area. Sailkupa upazila primary education officer, Israil Hossain, said the department will take action to continue the education of the children under alternative arrangements if the school building was unfit. “As I haven’t been able to visit the school since I joined at Sailkupa, I’ll visit it soon and inform the higher authorities immediately,” he added.

The assistant district education officer in Jhenidah, Lakhkhan Kumar Das, said he was not aware of the damaged school building as the local office in Sailkupa has not apprised the district education office about the matter till date.
