Slum Girls Top BMC School's SSC Results

By A Draft Colaba Correspondent

One's mother works as a house-help at a few neighbourhood homes while another's father loads fish off trawlers at Sassoon Docks. The last two years of subsequent lockdowns have been tortuous for most slumdwellers, most of who lost their jobs and struggled to survive.


Yet, a BMC school in Colaba, whose students comprise the poorest, has registered cent percent success in the recently-held SSC examinations...of which the top five performers were all girls...and from a slum too.

Their feat, in the face of seemingly unsurmountable obstacles, is exemplary to say the least. 

Their parents are thrilled to bits, their teachers beam with pride as they speak of their travails during their journey to success and their aspirations for the future.

One wants to become an IPS officer while another a teacher to help 'her' sort. They're well on the way to make their dreams come true!
