The school was meant for familiarising children who were deployed as labourers with school atmosphere. After six months, these children would be admitted into regular schools, Dr. Jawahar Reddy said.
The bridge school was meant for the children of fishermen community. The Collector appealed to the parents, especially parents in the fishermen community, to see that their children were admitted into the school. An educated child would be better equipped to deal with all problems, he said.
Dr. Reddy said that two classrooms would be constructed in the school under the Sarva Siksha Abhiyan scheme. Responding to representations, he promised to solve the drinking water problem under sectoral reforms. He would hold talks with persons concerned and see that the problem of effluents was also controlled.
