Siliguri | The dispute between Narayana School and the Guardian Forum has been resolved and the issue has been closed once and for all. Rama Narayana Education Trust, the Parent Body managing the Chain of Narayana schools all over India, has not only agreed to most of the demands of the Guardians but also announced a string of reliefs for the Students.
The Guardians have welcomed the move of the school and say that it is a positive step forward, ensuring the bright future of the students.
It was seen that both the branches of Narayana School in Siliguri (Salugara and Fulbari ), were admitting students from Classes 9 to 12 without proper CBSE affiliation. In a state of anxiety, the parents reached the school to clear out the matter with the School Authorities. It was then that the Guardian Forum, lead by Mr. Sandipan Bhattarjee (President), came to the rescue of the parents and started negotiations with the school. There were a number of meetings with the school authorities and after much discussion it was inferred, that in the best interests of the students, the following terms shall be applied with immediate effect:
1. The admission fees will hereby be reduced by 25000/- and Security Deposit by Rs. 10000/-.
2. There shall be no increase in session fees till 30th April 2019.
3. All infrastructure facilities shall be completed within 30th April’18.
4. The practical classes for the Science Stream will commence at the earliest.
5. Teachers will take extra classes to clear the backlog if any.
Mr. Sandipan Bhattacharjee also stressed that Schools are a “Temple of Knowledge”, meant for education and learning and not for Protests and Agitation. He has also assured the parents that The Guardian Forum would write to the CBSE Headquarters in New Delhi and request them to support the school, keeping in view, the future of the students that study therein. The Parents were ecstatic with the outcome and have also pledged to monitor and support the school.
