Lift Installed at School in Mohali for students
Following the guidelines of the Central Board of Secondary Education, a school in Mohali has installed a lift for its students. As per the report, the lift has been specially installed in the Mohali school for easy access on all the floors for the wheelchair-bound students.
The Central Board of Secondary Education has passed a mandate that every school in the country should install a lift or it must have a ramp for the easy access of the students. This move is aimed at making the school more accessible for differently abled and at the same time offering hassle-free movement of the sick and injured in the school.
A gesture worth appreciation
In the dearth of sufficient space, the school had to install a lift in the premises for the differently abled students. It has been reported that the Vivek High School in Mohali Sector 70 has four floors. Realising the need of a ramp for the differently abled students in the school the authorities decided to install a lift in the premises as there was a crunch of space required for constructing the ramp to connect all the four floors of the school building.
All the laboratories of the Vivek High School in Mohali Sector 70 are on the upper floors. As per the report, the school keeps organising different activities here and it was necessary to make all the floors accessible for the differently abled students in the school.
Students delighted after installation of the lift
The differently abled students of the school were elated after the lift was installed in the premises. One of the differently abled students in the school was assisted by school maid to go to the upper floors. It had become difficult for the maid to carry the student to the upper floors in the dearth of a ramp in the school. But after the installation of the lift in the school students will be able to access all the upper floors in the school which is indeed a reason of delight for the students.
