Press for upgradation of DPMSHVI to hr sec level

ITANAGAR, Jan 7: With three differently abled students from Donyi Polo Mission School for the Hearing &Visually Impaired, Itanagar passing out the class X board examination in 2017 and 12 more going to appear in the same exam this year, the school authority has pressed the need for the upgradation of DPMSHVI to higher secondary level so that they can continue with their higher studies for the sake of the differently abled children.

In a press note, DPMSHVI Principal H Sharma informed that three visually impaired students of the school namely Toku Mary from Palin, Switzer Taggu and Ree Koyu from Pasighat passed out of class X board examination in 2017, which he said it is a landmark in the history of rehabilitation of differently abled children in Arunachal Pradesh and so, this has led to a strong need for upgrading the school to higher secondary level in the larger interest of the blind children  to continue with their higher education in the home state only.

Moreover, on this count he added that 12 more hearing and visually impaired children are going to appear in class X board exam this year.

Pointing that mostly such children belong to rural areas and consequently are poor who require education free of cost to come into the mainstream of society, he viewed that the parents often neglect and deprive them of getting higher education outside the state owing to financial hardship.

Sharma observed: “The differently abled children are fully individual human being just like anyone else with independent personalities, dreams, aspiration, interest and skills. They have the rights as well as potential to lead successful and happy lives with dignity and relative self-reliance just as much as anyone else.”

The Principal signed off saying “there is a need that the state govt, philanthropic citizens and the leading NGOs must come forward to evolve a strategy to enable the visually and hearing impaired children to get higher education in their home state only.”
