Coimbatore Corporation Commissioner T.K. Ponnusamy on Monday ordered restoration of playground to the S.R.P. Ammani Ammal Corporation Girls' Higher Secondary School, R.S. Puram.
After inspecting the school and the nearby ground along with Mayor R. Venkatachalam, R. Kalyanasundaram, Chairman, Corporation Committee on Education, Parks and Playgrounds, and committee members P. Shobana and V.K.S.K. Senthilkumar, he asked the engineering wing staff to move the earthmovers and lorries to the Corporation's workshop, level the ground, prune the trees, restore the ground and handover the same to the school.
Mr. Kalyanasundaram had asked the Commissioner to inspect the ground saying that the space within the school compound was insufficient to meet the students' needs.
He said the students were earlier allowed to use nearby ground, which was just across the road.
Of late, however, the engineering wing had taken over the ground to park their vehicles.
