KORAPUT: Space is a major concern at Gangrajpur Upper Primary school at Pottangi block in Koraput district. The school, which is located just 5 km away from the block headquarters, does not have adequate number of classrooms for 220 students, who are studying from Classes I to X.

The school has its own building with just two classrooms meant for students of Classes I to V. However, these two classrooms are used to teach students of Classes III and  IV. Students of Classes I and II are taught at the verandah of the school while hostel rooms of the residential schools are converted into classrooms for students of Classes VI and VII in the morning. Students from Classes VIII to X are taken to the Cluster Resource Centre Co-ordinator (CRCC) building at Gangrajpur for their lessons.

During rainy season, students do not turn up to attend classes due to the inconvenience of classrooms. Although a new building is being constructed for the school, that will not be sufficient to accommodate all the students,  the school officials said. Village headman Mohan Banka said the district administration should construct  additional building for the school.
