Alappuzha teachers take loan of Rs 5 lakh to build rest-room for their students

Inauguration of the rest-room

Muhamma: Teachers of Muhamma CMS LP school in Alappuzha have built a restroom for their students by taking a loan of Rs 5 lakh. Notably, years ago, teachers in this same school had similarly built an auditorium.

Interestingly, the school, which was on the verge of shutdown, was uplifted by such initiatives. It has grabbed around 50 awards for various scholastic and extra-curricular activities.

The idea of building a restroom was spearheaded by headteacher Jolly Thomas. The teachers decided to take a loan, and eight of them borrowed money from Taluk Aided Primary Teachers’ Cooperative Society in Cherthala. They have to repay Rs 11,000 a month. The loan repayment period is for five years.

There are 680 students in this school. The old restroom was demolished to construct the new one.
