According to the students and the locals, the school is situated in the close vicinity of a forest and wild animals venture into the school premises very often. Further, they added, there is an open well near the school and in absence of boundary wall, mishap can happen any time.
The situation can be gauged from the fact that the school misses extra-curricular activities to avoid any mishap because of no boundary wall and even during the recess time, the students are asked to take extra caution by remaining confined to safer area.
The School Headmistress told the Excelsior that the students could not concentrate on their studies as their attention gets diverted to happenings outside the school premises. “We repeatedly apprised the CEO Udhampur about all this but nothing was done except assurances to construct the boundary wall,” she added and urged the Governor to issue necessary instructions for construction of boundary wall for safety of the students.
