Students in this school study under an umbrella

From the past three years, students of the Govt high school located at the Hassan district of Karnataka have secured 100 per cent result in SSLC. It has 168 students (87 boys and 81 girls). In terms of quality education, it is giving a tough fight to the nearby Morarji Residential School. Yet when it comes to infrastructure, the school presents a sad picture. During rains, students here have to use their umbrellas to protect themselves and their books. Not only roofs, even walls of the classrooms are damaged and floors remain submerged under water.

The 50-year-old school has eight rooms, out of which two are used for office purposes, three classrooms  become unaccessible during rainy season as roofs start leaking, and rest three require students to use umbrellas during rains.

This school has only one teacher and one student

Have you ever heard of a school having only one student and one teacher? Well, that’s precisely the number of students and teachers that you will find in Government Girls Secondary School at Lukhi village in Rewari. And despite the school having three rooms, the teacher and the student sit outside on the porch as the rooms are being used for storage purposes.

Daya Kishan, the sole teacher of the school, is basically a social science teacher but here, he not only teaches all subjects to his only student, Kusum Kumari, but also works as a school sweeper. Kumari, who studies in class VII, doesn’t mind being the only student in the school but says, “The one thing I miss is friends.”
