Excerpts From RFP & Site Visit
Currently the infrastructure need is for 5 to 7th and this school is likely to house 8th in future as per the Rashtreeya Madhyamika Shikshana Neethi. Newly built classroom by Government is already leaking and not fit for students to sit. There are so many old broken structures that need to be demolished. Sump is in a place very far from Borewell and also far from kitchen. Kids pull water out of the sump by hand which is dangerous.
On inspecting the school, the engineer has suggested repairing the main building which has bad flooring and roofing (Mangalore tiles). Once fixed, 5 th to 7 th standard can be accommodated here. Fix the roof of the newly build classroom to make it waterproofing. With this the 1 st to 4 th standard classes can move into the new class rooms.
The sump to be shifted close to kitchen and fix the water and toilet supply. We may also have to repair the existing toilet block for boys to make it work as the same has no proper drain facility because of which water is getting stagnant.
Total estimation for carrying out the above work is estimated at about Rs. 12.00 lakhs.
School management and Zilla panchayat has agreed to demolish the old blocks and clean it up. Also panchayat member has agreed to get the drinking water from the panchayat to the School premises.
