Sirsa district is bordering two  states i.e. Punjab and Rajasthan and there being no school of 8th standard in the proximity of more than 100 kms, students after passing out 5th class have either to discontinue their study or get admission elsewhere which is causing a lot of trouble to the students as well as their parents. Hence, Distt Administration is planning to upgrade the existing school to 8th standard, a proposal of which is being moved separately
