VILLUPURAM: Since their classrooms were damaged in the rains and about to collapse any time, students of a panchayat union primary school at M Tirukanur near Marakanam have been attending classes under the tree, even as the parents of the students demanded repair of the buildings as soon as possible.

About 30 students study in the school, built 20 years ago and having classes from I to V. The classrooms got damaged in the first week of December following the  rains and the roof had weakened, almost about to come crashing down.

As a temporary arrangment, teachers have been taking classes by making the students sit under the tree on the school premises. Since there was no compound wall, students were not able to concentrate in studies as they get distracted.

Villagers said they had taken this issue to the notice of the Marakanam town panchayat union and also to the Education Department, through the teachers. But the officials asked the teachers to hold the classes in the damaged buildings itself.
