Every year, teachers from Raiganj Ten Class Girls High School have to live in panic due to landslides during the rainy season. Authorities have long demanded the construction of a river bank to protect the school from erosion. This year too, the school authorities were worried about how to save the school from demolition. Finally, following the demand of the school authorities, the Irrigation Department started the construction work of the guard wall of the Kulik river adjacent to the school. Baban Saha, a member of the school’s management committee, said the school’s toilets had been submerged in the river for about four years due to erosion problems. Cracks have appeared in the three-storey building. We applied to the administration as well as the Irrigation Department for the guard wall.
