Actions of governing body of Malda St Xavier's school under scanner : Civic body chief holds meeting

8 Oct 2018

Aggrieved guardians of the St Xavier's school, the first of its kind in the district met English Bazaar MLA and chairman of the civic body Nihar Ghosh today seeking his intervention to resolve the crises of the institution endangering the fate of innocent students.
Outgoing secretary of the school governing body Debapriya Saha was asked too to attend the meeting held at the conference room of English Bazaar municipality.
Ghosh said that the basic concern of the guardians was that the students of class IX, X, XI & XII are yet to get registered by the ICSE board.
It has been learnt from sources that the board made it clear, registration would not be done unless the school forms a governing body through proper election and a permanently appointed duly qualified principal. 
"Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has made it categorically clear that no political interference should be made into any educational institution be it a school or a college. So our only motto is to help guardians form the new governing body by themselves," Ghosh said.
Many guardians blamed the governing body that is allegedly being run without any norms.
It has been also alleged violating all rules and regulations the questionable governing body tried to appoint principal. But that did not yield any result as the entire process was allegedly against the law of the state and the central government.
Taking into consideration the grievances of the guardians, Nihar Ghosh said that another meeting would be held on Tuesday to find solutions to the crises.
Saha, outgoing secretary of the governing body, validity of which was challenged said, "Appointment process of principal has been cancelled. We would take up anew. It is hoped that the problems would be resolved soon." (EOIPC)
