Parents protest condition of Rousillac Hindu School

Wednesday, November 19 2008

ANGRY parents of pupils attending the Rousillac Hindu School will not be sending their children to school until the school is repaired.

On Monday, parents took their children out of school before noon and vowed that they will not return to classes until the Education Ministry or the Sanatan Dharma Maha Sabha answer their concerns. The school building was partly destroyed by fire in 2002 and the 75 pupils at the school are housed in that part of the building.

But parents say the area of the building in which their children attend classes is not habitable and often floods whenever rain falls.

Other complaints include non-functioning toilets, the building’s roof which is on the verge of caving in, poor lighting and lack of furniture.

Shemila said parents were fed up with the situation. “Imagine students have to stand when they go to computer class because there are no chairs,” she said.

Secretary of the Hindu School Board, Satnarine Maharaj, said the Board was told by the ministry to submit plans for a new school and it was done.

He said the Board assisted in purchasing half an acre of land to build the new school but was then told by the ministry that they would rebuild the school and wanted the Board to sign an agreement.

“We did this early last year,” said Maharaj, adding that the ministry was yet to start construction.

Efforts were made to contact communications manager for the Education Ministry, Rory Subiah, for a comment on the issue.
