Govt. Higher Primary School, Tungabhadra Village
In the year 2009 the whole village got submerged in the floods and the school building got damaged. All the rooms in the original school building are in a very bad condition and two of those rooms have been declared as unsafe by the Deputy Director of Public Instruction during the school inspection. Yet, classes go on in 3 rooms that are not yet fallen down.
Out of these 3 rooms, classes 1-3 are held in one small room, while classes 4-6 are held in other 2 rooms. Additional “classrooms” are dispersed in nearby areas.
While one of the primary grade classes is held in the close-by temple premises, the 8th grade classes are held in the Anganawadi building, which is little far away from the main school structure.
OSAAT procured all necessary documentation related the land and ownership,and later obtained the necessary ‘No Objection Certificate’ from education department to start the construction. The contractor was identified for the project and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed with the contractor and the school’s SDMC. Groundbreaking ceremony was on January 19th, 2019. The construction was expected to be completed in about 4 months.
However, with rains playing havoc and some unforseen challenges in securing the perimeter sorrounding the school property, the project had to be extended for a longer duration.
BALA – Building As a Learning Aid principles were used in painting informational and educational images from different aspects of science, mathematics and language for the benefit of the students.
The new school building was inaugurated amidst much fanfare and dedicated to the students on 23rd November, 2019.
