GUWAHATI, Jan 27 � The dismal condition of vernacular government schools in the State is not something new. Most of such schools do not have the facilities, which a student needs today to survive in this competitive world.
For those who have studied in the government schools of the State, it is easier to identify with the condition of Dispur Government Higher Secondary Vidyalaya, a government vernacular school in the heart of the city.
But very soon, the school is going to have a website of its own, improved computer facilities, career counselling sessions, and a group of alumni, who would handhold their juniors.
A group of ex-students of the school have decided to kick- start a campaign for the betterment of the overall environment of the school.
The first-ever alumni meet of the Dispur Government Higher Secondary School on January 29 would be more than a mere alumni meet in many ways.
Talking to The Assam Tribune Tituraj Kashyap, an alumnus of the school, working with a corporate house in Delhi said that the alumni meet has been organized to bring the former and present students of the school on one platform and prepare a roadmap for development of the school.
As a part of the campaign, a website for the school would be launched on January 29 where all parties involved with the school would find first hand and updated information. One of the most ambitious concepts behind this website is that it will have a dedicated platform where one can seek help in terms of career, and one can also provide employment opportunities. Moreover, career appraising classes would be organized where best of alumni in various fields would come and provide guidance. Vocational tours would also be organized to places like Army cantonment, hospitals, design studios, etc., where the past students are working,� he mentioned.
