The lives of students in Ayodhya Nagar Marathi and Telugu-medium BMC school at Chembur-Vashi Naka is at risk owing to the dilapidated condition of the school building. The plan was to demolish the building, set up a transit camp near the ground and shift the students to the camp. BMC Education department decided to shift the school to a residential building of the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority (MHADA). Parents have opposed the shift as the MHADA building is not close to their homes, and they didn’t want to take the risk.The foundation stone was laid by local corporator in December 2016 to build a ground plus five-floor building for the Ayodhya Nagar Marathi and Telugu-medium school.After one developer took the matter to court to reserve the ground for playground and not for educational purposes, the transit camp could not be built. According to sources, in September, the school officials brought the condition of building to the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) notice of BMC’s education department.In a recent ward committee meeting, the higher authorities ordered the school officials to vacate the school immediately and move the students to a safer place. A residential building of MHADA named Suraksha was then finalised and it was decided to give four rooms. Parents have opposed this move on the grounds that the new building is far and they didn’t want to risk sending their children to a residential building.A BMC education official on condition of anonymity said, “We are still exploring where to shift the students as the MHADA building where it is decided to shift haveDIP IN STUDENTSThe school, earlier, had 550 students in Marathi medium and 250 in Telugu medium.
