The school has around 100 Odia students and 9 teachers
Odisha school and mass education department secretary Satyabrata Sahu has written to his West Bengal counterpart, Manish Jain, to immediately take up the restoration of Gopabandhu High School in Kolkata.
Located at Bhawanipore in Kolkata, the school has around 100 Odia students studying at the secondary level. The school has 9 teachers and other support staff.
“As a substantial number of Odia people live in Kolkata, a number of Odia educational institutions have come up in the city with the support of your government. One such school, Gopabandhu High School, in Bhawanipore got official recognition from your government in 1981. But Kolkata police and the local administration have recently declared the school building as unsafe and accordingly a banner has been pasted on its wall,” wrote Sahu in the letter.
Stating that Cyclone Amphan has destroyed the school building, Sahu said, “The condition of the building started to deteriorate after Cyclone Amphan. It has further worsened since then. I request you to look into the matter personally and take immediate steps for renovation of the school building so that 100 Odia students studying there, along with the teachers and support staff, feel safe.”
