Investigation Report on the Harni Lake Tragedy Involving New Sunrise School

Following the tragic incident at Harni Lake, where 12 students and 2 teachers from New Sunrise School lost their lives, the state authorities ordered a comprehensive investigation by various agencies. The District Education Office in Vadodara conducted its own probe into the matter and submitted its report to District Collector Rakesh Vyas. The investigation report highlights the need for disciplinary action against accountable teachers for their negligence during the excursion at the lake. Furthermore, the report recommends the revocation of the school’s accreditation.

Accreditation Revoked for New Sunrise School by Primary Education Regulator

The Primary Education Regulator has issued a directive to revoke the accreditation of New Sunrise School. The school did not obtain any form of approval from the District Education Office for the excursion conducted. During the primary investigation, it was revealed that the administrators of New Sunrise School had declared the trip as an educational excursion within Vadodara city without the necessary approval from the District Education Office.

As per the directives of the state government, schools must obtain approval whenever students are taken to any location outside the school premises. In this regard, it was found during the initial investigation that the school alone cannot be held accountable. The school did not procure the necessary permission from the District Education Office for the excursion outside the lake zone. This discrepancy surfaced clearly during the investigation.
