From average school to educational oasis

KHAIRPUR:May 29:Believe it or not, four-year-old Rukhsana Inam of kindergarten-II and 15 schoolmates walk an hour to reach their school in Jumma Goth every day.

But Rukhsana’s one-hour walk is worth it, because the kids end up at a state-of-the-art school established between date palm farms in a small village named Kuoro Goth in Khairpur.

The 14-room school in a ground plus one building is not what one would imagine a government school to be. Hidden amid the farms, Government High School Kuoro Goth is a perfect example of an amalgamation of existing infrastructure and modern facilities.
With science and computer laboratories fully equipped with computers and apparatus, the red stone building has been designed to provide students the best environment to study.

The school is the only government school within a five kilometre radium, shared headmaster Ali Madad. “The primary and elementary schools were merged to form this school when it was inaugurated on April 7, 2016 and was upgraded to the status of a high school,” he said, adding that the then chief minister and minister for education, Qaim Ali Shah and Nisar Ahmed Khuhro, along with Bakhtawar Bhutto Zardari and former US consul-general Brian Heath inaugurated the school.The news.
