The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai (MCGM) has propoosed the construction of a swimming pool adjacent to the current location of the Garden School premises. Neighbouring schools like St. Anne’s, Fort Convent, Campion YMCA and Garden School have objected to this.
All sports associates, trainers, Principals, students, staff, parents and other people were present for the rally at Azad Maidan ,Mumbai to express their solidarity in opposing this proposal.
For all these schools that are located in the vicinity of the existing playground, this is the only playground in which their students can play sports like football and basketball.
The rally provided an opportunity for the public at large to express their discontent and opposition to the proposal. Further, the existing swimming pools constructed and maintained by the MCGM are in poor condition and the obvious concern is that this too will become another blot on the local environs.
