Addressing the gathering MLAJ JR Lobo said, ” We need to appreciate the good work done by MRT-115 along with MLC-82 in contributing to the cost of building these two classrooms. When government lacks behind in supporting government funded schools, help from organizations like these is very much needed. We also should commend old-student of this school N Rao for also financially supporting this project. Now that these classrooms are built, it is the duty of the students to study well, get good grades and become the future citizens of India. “
Mayor Kavitha addressing the audience said, ” If the government sanctions some funds towards MCC to restore some of the dilapidated government schools in Mangalure, MCC will be ready to undertake such projects at the earliest. Glad to note that organizations and other donors have come forward to help this school in building two new classrooms, which will surely benefit the students. Any help that is needed from MCC we will be ready to support the school in their projects”.
