After photos of students painting the outer wall of Government Senior Secondary School (Boys), Bhawanigarh, went viral on social media, area residents have demanded action against the school authorities. Residents alleged that the school authorities had no right to pressurise students for such study work in the school.

“When the school authorities get funds for renovation, then what is need to press students to paint the outer wall of the school. It shows that teachers are pocketing such grants. The Education Department must take action against the teachers concerned,” said Harbhajan Singh Happy, an AAP leader.

After a few residents saw some students painting the wall of their school, they clicked photos and shared it in various WhatsApp groups and photos were also uploaded on Facebook.

“It has exposed the real reasons for poor results of government schools as teachers are more interested in getting the school work done rather than pressing students to concentrate on their studies. Teachers would have their excuses, but senior authorities must look into the matter to prevent its repeat,” said Jagtar Singh, a resident.

When contacted, principal, Government Senior Secondary School (Boys), Bhawanigarh, Tarwinder Kaur said she did not ask students to paint the wall.

“I was painting the outer wall, but when for some official work, I came inside the office, some students started painting on their own. Why would my staff and I ask students to do such work,” she said.
