As part of continuous distribution of rice to students of Leimapokpam Government Public High School, rice was also distributed to 199 students of the School studying in Class 6 to Class 8 on Tuesday.
The rice distribution occasion was jointly carried out by former Head Mistress of the School and State Awardee L. Manglembi, members of School Management Committee and teachers of the school in such that the students can somehow ease the hardship faced due to the lockdown.
L. Manglembi said that during the lockdown students could not get the rice sanction for Mid Day Meal under SSA as they are unable to attend school.
Thus, under the supervision of ZEO Zone IV Bishnupur N. Tikendrajit, the students were called at the school and the rice was distributed to them with maintaining social distancing.
Parents and guardians of the students of the school also appreciated for distributing the rice and maintains that their family will be able to serve meals even if it has be just for one day.
