Tired of waiting for government funds, the public of Longya ward under Kiphire district constructed a room at Government Middle School (GMS) Longya ward in Kiphire town for caretaker of the school on Thursday.
The room was constructed voluntarily by ward union, staff and SMC of GMS Longya ward.
The school authority requested the concerned ward officials for this initiative where they collectively agreed to build a room for a person to live in and look after the school.
Members of the ward constructed the house from their own contributions and would be initiating footsteps construction for the school in the future. It may be mentioned that GMS Longya ward is located far from the Town area where there are no fences, water connectivity, sufficient rooms and other facilities.
The school was also burgled by unknown miscreants on several occasions where school properties including computer, printer, gas stove, books and science lab instruments etc., went missing.
