Rajouri (Jammu and Kashmir) [India], November 16 (ANI): A government school in the Border area of Manjakote Zone in Rajouri district is ensuring to provide every facility to its students and teachers.

Earlier we used to sit on the ground in our free time but now we have a different park altogether where can sit on benches during our free time," said Haseena, student.
The school management is also ensuring that teachers who are coming from far-flung areas get proper accommodation near the school so that they don't have to travel regularly.

As per Parvinder Kumar, Senior Lectrauar, the strength of students in school is increasing due to these changes. "Earlier there were only 250 students, but after instilling a new team and new facilities the strength has gone up to 370. There are hardly any government school where strength is increasing." (ANI)
