Mohammad Ayub Bhat, Principal of a Government Girls Secondary School Ichigam in Budgam district of Jammu & Kashmir says, last two-three years was a difficult time for education. But we made a concerted effort and now slowly children are coming back on track. A student Humaira Shafi praising teachers said, they teach very well here. We girls also learn volleyball, football, badminton and all the other games. The teachers care for us a lot. And we do not think this school is any different than a private school.
Another student Urbaah Farooq is all praises for her school teachers. She says, the facilities provided to them is more than what private school children get. Most of all, they enjoy studying here and they can get their issues cleared multiple times.

She has gained a lot of knowledge in school and quite happy that she has got such good teachers. The Principal said that a lot of girls have gone up to the district level in football, volley ball and kho kho. And they have been rewarded with medals.
