Kamballur: For the last one and half years, the newly constructed buildings of Kamballur Government Higher Secondary School in Kasaragod lay idle and await a state minister for inauguration. The school authorities were forced to keep the buildings closed after failing to find a minister for inauguration.
Under the Kasaragod Development Package, Rs 75 lakh was allocated for constructing one of the two new buildings in the school. Following this, a building for the LP-UP sections of the school was constructed with eight classrooms and toilet facilities. The building was completed an year ago despite delays caused by Covid-19 and other reasons.
The new block was constructed by demolishing an older building. However, the delay left the school authorities struggling to find space for conducting classes. As a result, the school shifted a few classes to the new building.
The second building was constructed for Rs 2.45 crore. The three-storied building has 12 classrooms, four laboratories, and an auditorium. The building is still unused and is yet to be opened to students. Earlier, it was expected that Chief Minister would inaugurate the building on May 31. However, the tight schedule of the minister forced school authorities to postpone the inauguration. PTA president KS Sreenivasan said the building would be inaugurated before June 30.
