By Prem Shivani

MITHI: Expressing concern over the shortage of teachers and class rooms in the Government Girls High School, Islamkot, the residents demanded funds for the construction of additional class rooms and repair of the dilapidated building and also called for inducting female teachers for smooth functioning.

Virjimal, Khilumal, Khushhaldas, Mubarak, Abdul Latif and others told Dawn on Monday that more than 375 girls were enrolled there. This was the only girls’ school in the area, they said adding that out of seven female teachers only four were conducting the classes and three were on deputation in Chelhar and Mithi.

Teachers take lessons beneath the trees due to the shortage of class rooms, the school building is in dilapidated condition and also lacks bathroom facility, they said.

Dust is eating 16 computers because of unavailability of an instructor, students are suffering due to the absence of a science teacher, road passing through the school is in shambles with yawning gutters and heaps of rubbish adorning the school.
