The foundation stone for the new senior secondary building of Alhuda Public School was laid by Public Works Minister V K Ebrahim Kunju at Panayikulam near here on Thursday.
While inaugurating the function, the Minister said that schools providing quality education is a dream nurtured by everyone. “Hence, this is an extremely happy occasion for the natives of Panayikulam.”
Health and education are two important factors of life, and are important to a government that looks after the welfare of the people. The state should be proud for having been able to provide both free of cost, and having set an example to the nation, he said.
He added that education is expensive and it is the reason why the state government is sanctioning more schools in the private sector, so that ordinary people could aspire for a better education. The Minister while expressing his regret over not being able to provide the MLA fund for the project, guaranteed that a classroom would be provided at his expense.
V D Satheesan MLA said that education is the only way for the backward people to come forward.Dr M K Muhammed Aslam, president of the school management committee, welcomed the gathering while K B Abdulla, chairman , Al huda Educational Trust, made the presidential speech.
