Twenty Primary school buildings in Sattari Taluka require urgent repairs before the academic year begins.

Report of the same has already been submitted to higher authorities of the Education Department from ADEI officer in Valpoi stating urgent repairs are required to build confidence among the people from the concerned areas.

It may be recalled that there has been a drop in enrollment of students in the Government Primary for the past few years due to which the Education Department has shut almost 10 primary in the past 10 years.

Last year itself, four schools had stopped operating mainly due to the lack of facilities and the deteriorating condition of the buildings.

“We have already informed the ADEI officer Valpoi regarding our village dilapidated school building and also have submitted a written letter to the ADEI officer to repair our village school building very fast, but till date they have not taken any action,” says Satyawan Gaonkar, a panch member, Hivrem village.

“Our Vante village primary school is on the way to collapse. We have already complained to the ADEI officer. An officer visited the school last year and had done an estimate for the repair works but till date they haven’t done any repairs. The school building will collapse definitely this monsoon season,” says Nitin Shivdekar, Bhirondem Sarpanch.

The ADEI officer refused to comment.
