At the moment the ground has been leveled and foundations and boundary walls are being constructed by community members.
Meanwhile, the school administration is busy in upgrading the computer labs. Ten new computers have been purchased for this purpose. The local people have demanded of the government to extend internet access to the region and facilitate the students in the learning process.
