School lost in river: Teachers in extreme distress with students in Daulatkhan

Sabbir Alam Babu, Bhola

The school building of Central Hajipur Government Primary School No. 50 in Daulatkhan of Bhola was destroyed a year ago due to river erosion. As a result, the school was relocated to the mainland. But the students and teachers are in dire straits as there is no school building in the new place. Burning in the sun under the open sky, having to take wet classes in the rain.

This is disrupting the teaching activities of the students. Students and locals have demanded the construction of a pucca building to improve the quality of education for children in the area. The Upazila Nirbahi Officer said that immediate action will be taken for the new building of the school.

Study under the open sky. Hajipur Government Primary School No. 50, Daulatkhan Upazila, Bhola. As there is no building of its own, teaching is going on in a floating way. The school was affected by river erosion last year. The burning of the 3-storey building was the cause of the terrible collapse of the Meghna.

After that, the educational activities of the school almost stopped. Later, the school was shifted to Ward No. 8 of Charkhalifa Union in Daulatkhan with a shed and a shed tin when an eminent businessman donated land 3/4 months ago. But the one-room school does not accommodate students. So they have to take classes under the open sky in the scorching sun and in the rain.

Anha, Suraiya, Nayan, Shaheen and many others, the fifth class students of the school, said that they are having a hard time studying as there is no school building. Because it burns in the sun. And the rain is actually wet. Now I have to study on the school field. Rain actually makes everyone sit huddled in a shack. A lot of the time the rain actually makes the teachers leave early so we have to go home. This is hindering many of our studies. We want a building from the Prime Minister so that we can study in a beautiful environment.

Sajal Kumar Majumder, assistant teacher of the school, said, “We re-established the school in Char Khalifa Union as a result of river erosion last year with the aim of building well-educated citizens.” But due to lack of infrastructure we are hindering to give proper education to the students. Since several classrooms are teaching at the same time, the students are not studying properly.

However, students and parents here have a lot of interest to study. Now it is necessary to build a government building.

Golam Rahman, headmaster of Madhya Hajipur Government Primary School No. 50, said that Madhya Hajipur Government Primary School No. 50 at Daulatkhan in Bhola was established in 1920 at Naildugi Baikunthapur village. This school is 102 years old. Officially, a 3-storey building was constructed for the students of the school. But normal activities are being disrupted after the school was shifted as the building collapsed due to the erosion of the Meghna River.

Later, Amirul Islam Bachchu, a prominent local businessman with a passion for education, bought 16 per cent land in the name of the school in Ward 8 of Charkhalifa Union and the institution was re-established here. Now due to lack of building, about 60 students from first to fifth class have to take classes under the open sky. Since there are no schools nearby, local parents are also interested in enrolling and educating their children here. Even if there is a room without electricity, it is not possible to take classes in it. We cannot provide a beautiful environment for teaching students as there is no building. It is not possible for students to take multimedia classes. In order to improve the quality of education, the students urgently need a paved building for this school. Daulatkhan Upazila Education Officer Md. Hossain said the school has been shifted from the char area to Charkhalifa Union in the mainland due to river erosion.

Now the teachers are teaching in one corner of the field. We have informed the higher authorities to make a building for this school. Daulatkhan Upazila Nirbahi Officer Mohammad Tareq Hawlader said the school was set up in the adjoining Charkhalifa Union due to the breakage of the Meghna. The higher authorities will be informed by talking to the local MP for this school building. Quickly this school is like a building being built.

Hajipur Government Primary School, South Naldugi Government Primary School and 5 other government primary schools of this union have been destroyed due to river erosion.
