Jenkins School 150
The Jenkins School, one the best schools in north Bengal, is going to complete its 150 anniversary in February 2011. But the authorities are yet to take any initiative to celebrate the event. The 125th anniversary was also passed off without any celebration. Alleging this the president of Cooch Behar Town Block unit of Trinamul Chhatra Parishad Mr Manoj Roy and others submitted a memorandum to the head master of the school. They demanded immediate initiative to celebrate the completion of 150 year of the school. Mr Roy said the authorities were expected to take initiatives in February of this tear but they ignored the sentiment of the students and ex-students of the school.
Many eminent ex-students too demanded celebration of the 150 year of Jenkins School. On the otherhand, the school authorities said they would convey the demand to the higher authorities in state education department. - Debashis Bhaumik
