Rotary club: A renovated government school in Belthangady Taluk | Mangaluru News

Mangaluru: The former student, a lawyer and members of the Rotary Club have pooled funds to give Dakshina Kannada Zilla Panchayat Muguli Upper Government Primary School, Belthangady taluk a facelift. The 60-year-old school was in a dilapidated state. The school which has 52 children admitted, is located in a remote village of Belthangady, and situated on two acres. The school was established under the leadership of the late Muguli M Parameshwar Rao.
Jagadish Rao, an alumnus, entrepreneur from Bengaluru, member of the Rotary Club and his son Parameshwar Rao, together with Senior Advocate BK Dhananjaya Rao and other donors from Rotary Club Indiranagar, Bengaluru, and Rotary Club, Belthangady, contributed nearly Rs 8.5 lakh towards the renovation of the school. “Work is ongoing,” said BK Dhananjaya Rao.
Dhananjaya added that the school had educated many students, and when teachers at the school spoke of its rundown condition, he decided to help. “We expect to complete the work by the second week of March,” he said.
Principal (Head) Lucy Leena Moras said that two years ago it was former Principal Gertrude D’Souza who told the family of the late Parameshwar Rao about the need to renovate the school. Considering his request, Rao’s family and others showed up to take over the work. The school’s roof was repaired three years ago with the help of MLA LAD funds. Currently, the works of tiling, new toilets, painting, renovation of the auditorium and offices are in progress.
Rao’s family also distributes annual scholarships to one student from each class, who has excelled in studies.
