The decades-old building of the SITE Model School is in ruins with no boundary wall, leaving the students and teachers in unsafe conditions.

Nearly 40% building of this girl’s school was demolished during the anti-encroachment drive conducted to clear the path for the Karachi Circular Railway.

With no walls along its boundary and nearly half of the building damaged, most classes are now being conducted in the school’s ground, under the open sky.

The yet to be lifted debris, on the other hand, has attracted several drug addicts, besides being home to stray dogs.

Moreover, a vocational training center was earlier set up on the school’s premises with a private partner’s assistance. However, in the absence of a boundary wall, all equipment from the center was stolen during the lockdown when the school remained closed for an extended period. The vocational training center now lies idle.

Consequently, most parents are no longer willing to let their daughters attend school.

The teaching staff fears that the building will soon shut down if it won’t be reconstructed at the earliest. In the absence of a boundary wall, it was not just students whose safety was at risk, but also teachers.

The faculty further claimed that the wreckage collected after the building’s partial demolition could not be removed due to the lack of funds. They requested the Sindh government to build a wall and clear the debris so that students could study in peace.
