Calls for handing over a newly constructed building to the Kulathoor Government Technical High School are getting louder, even as the authorities are taking steps to inaugurate it for the proposed arts and science college in Neyyatinkara.

The Kulathoor Technical High School, which has been functioning in a rented building since 1983, was provided 5.9 acres of land in 1990. Classrooms and workshops for the students and the staff rooms were moved into a temporary building on this land.

The school, which has a strength of around 300 students and 50 employees, was offered a new building under the Rural Infrastructure Fund by NABARD.

The classrooms now function in a shabby building, which lacks basic facilities. Though the construction of the new building was completed a year ago, its inauguration is yet to take place.

Recently, the government had announced a number of colleges, including an arts and science college in Neyyatinkara and the authorities initiated steps to take  possession of the newly constructed building for the proposed institution.

The school authorities and the beneficiaries of the institution, including the local people, have expressed their protest with the authorities. Various organisations, including the school PTA, the Kerala Gazetted Officers’ Association and a local political party have opposed the move and sought immediate action to ensure necessary facilities to the school.
