Bura Namsang Students’ Union (BNSU) has expressed “deep anguish” at the decision of the school department to downgrade its lone Government High School (GHS) to Government Middle School (GMS) after a “prolong illnesses from deficiency of required teachers”.

In a press release, BNSU president, Metpong Phom and education secretary, Phakling Phom said the union had, at several occasions, appealed for more teaching staff. However, lamented that instead of addressing the problem the department had downgraded the GHS “without ascertaining the situation”.
Pointing out the grievances of students, BNSU said it is inconvenient for the students of Class VIII to appear their elementary examinations in another town. Therefore, the union has asked for an elementary examination centre at Bura Namsang village GMS and at one private school.
Meanwhile, BNSU has informed all teacher in-charge of GMS, GPS sector A, B & C of Bura Namsang village to reopen the school on January 22 and resume classes from first week of February, as per the academic calendar.
The union has also asked all teaching staff to be at their respective posting place and be present at combine meeting to be held on February 1, 2020 with VEC/SMC and students body. BNSU has warned that it would initiate action against the absentees.
