Tura, Feb 23: Meghalaya Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma on Tuesday spoke on his concerns over the low pass percentage in the Garo Hills region terming it a problem in the system that required a comprehensive remedy.

The chief minister mentioned the low pass percentage, particularly in the Class X Secondary School Leaving Certificate examinations, while inaugurating the secondary school block of the prestigious Loyola Higher Secondary School in Williamnagar which is being run by renowned missionaries from the Jesuit Community of the Catholic Church.

Referring to the problem of poor results, he said “This is a problem of the system as a whole and that is why the Government stresses on the need for community action and responsibility towards the young people of our State. Let us take on this challenge and ensure we encourage our children.”

Heaping praise on the missionaries for establishing Loyola School and College in Williamnagar, Conrad Sangma termed it “a premier institution which continues to be a blessing to the warm and wonderful people of East Garo Hills.”

Tura Lok Sabha MP Agatha K Sangma who also accompanied the chief minister inaugurated a new basketball court for the school which was constructed under the Chief Minister’s Special Development Fund.

Earlier, the chief minister flagged off a new school bus of St. George School at Samanda, 25 kms from Williamnagar, also under the CM’s special Development fund. He said that the bus will ease the commute of students from far-flung villages and supplement the school’s efforts in encouraging students to pursue their education.

The chief minister and other dignitaries were literally swept off their feet by a scintillating display of talent by the young school children of Loyola who presented a play on Charles Dickens novel ‘Oliver Twist’ to bring down the curtains to what was a grand finale in Williamnagar.
