Primary school without a home
I am the parent of a child attending the Barrackpore Asja Primary School. It has been a couple of months now that classes have been held at the mosque located at the back of the school because of the school building's dilapidated condition.
Last week two meetings were held with parents to assure us that classes would be continued at the mosque after rumours spread that mosque officials were going to put the children out.
One morning early this week parents and teachers were confronted with the school's furniture outside the building and with nowhere for our children to go.
Since the beginning of the year numerous pleas have been made to those in authority for a new school building but all to no avail.
Parents also sought the assistance of the MP Nizam Baksh who lives a stone's throw away from the school but to date they have not been met with any kind of serious support.
Our children are the nation's future but it certainly leaves one to wonder what the future holds when a simple request like this one for a new school cannot be met.
