Govt Model Higher Primary Girls School, Malur
This is a Girls only school and was established in 1948. The school caters to the needs of about 320 students from grade 1-8, mostly coming from poor farmer families. Medium of instruction is Kannada and English. There are 6 teachers and a cook. There are 6 more vacancies for staff who need to be appointed by the Government. Govt mid-day meal is served to all the students every day.
School has an old building built out of stone. The building block is completely dilapidated and in unusable condition for conducting classes. There is leakage and some of the walls are completely collapsed. Some old rooms are abandoned and some staff rooms are used for regular classes as well.
OSAAT has procured all necessary documentation related the land and ownership, has obtained the necessary ‘No Objection Certificate’ from education department to start the construction. The contractor has been identified for the project and is in the process of completing the signing of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the contractor and the school’s SDMC. The construction started in July-2019.
OSAAT also believes in community and local governance partnership in all its projects. Demolition of existing structure was a challenge. OSAAT leveraged the support of local community leaders in facilitating the demolition of dilapidated structure. Public works department simultaneously came with its own budget to construct 4 class-rooms. OSAAT helped in creating a master plan inclusive of both PWD as well as OSAAT blocks of building.
