MALAPPURAM : The Chaliyappuram Government High School near Edavannappara landed in trouble after the authorities committed a blunder while stamping seal in the SSLC book.Instead of the school seal, the authorities used a co-operative society’s stamp in the SSLC book.The mistake, however, left as many as 50 students, who have completed SSLC from the school, in a spot and triggered protests from their parents. The issue was brought to light when some parents approached the school authorities and started protests on Saturday citing the mistake would affect their children’s academic future.
The school later recalled the SSLC books and has decided to approach education authorities in order to issue new ones.According to Parent Teacher Association (PTA)functionaries, the school authorities stamped the seal of UP school’s co-operative society, in the place where the official seal of high school was to be stamped. The PTA, along with school staff, has decided to take all books with wrong seal to Thiruvananthapuram on Monday in order to resolve the issue.
The school, which was upgraded to high school from Upper Primary two years ago, had recorded cent per cent victory in SSLC examination this year. Meanwhile, a local action council ‘Prathikarana Vedi’ has lodged complaints in this regard with the Chief Minister, Education Minister and Director of Public Instruction.
