Govt: High School Diplo came into being in 1931 in the shape of Anglo Vernacular classes. It was raised to Anglo Vernacular School in 1937 and it was upgraded to High School in April 1944. It is situated in the east side of the Diplo town. From the very beginning till September 1972; it was controlled by District Council Tharparkar and than the control wad taken by the Provincial Government.Diplo Town stands at the farther southern end of Desert Sub-Division. The nearest Railway Station was Naukot which was about 70 kilometers far from Diplo Town in the North. Runn Kutch is only 20 kilometers from Diplo Town in the South. Diplo is linked with Naukot, Mithi, and Kaloi & Badin with Roads. Prior to 1990 there was no any metallic Road in Diplo. Only Katcha routes were linked the Naukot. Mithi, Badin, Kaloi. As the town is amid big sand dunes, the journey was very tedious, expensive and time waste/consuming. The population of Diplo town is about 10,000. In 1972 Sixty percent of the population is the Muslims and the rest are Hindus. Memons were in majority in the Town. Memons Community is greatly inclined towards Education. Before 1931, in absence of facilities for Secondary Education at Diplo Town, some student from Memon Community went to far off places Tando Bago, Mirpurkhas to receive Education. As a matter of facts, they became a source of inspiration for others to educate their children. From among the Memon community Late Ghulam Mohammad S/O Sahib Dino, Late Saeen Haji Abu Talib, Late Haji Bhale Dino and Qazi Ali Muhammad Rose to the occasion and launched a systematic campaign to get Anglo Vernacular (A.V) classes opened in Diplo Town. They kept the ball rolling and get A.V School in 1937. Their philanthropic nature prompted them not to drop the thread, so they kept their efforts a pace to see it a High School. In early forties, Qazi Ahmed Muhammad helped them in their efforts. In those days it was not easy to get a High School for a far flung place like Diplo, but their un-tiresome efforts they got High School for Diplo Town in 1944. The poor people of Diplo Town and catchments rural areas could not afford to send their children to School. In order to provide equal chances of Education to the children of poor people, Late Saeen Haji Abutalib Memon and Late Haji Bhaledino Memon took pains to collect money from the public and created welfare Student Fund. The needy students irrespective of class and creed receive financial aid regularly this fund. In fact this fund helped this School a lot to flourish.
The school from its babyhood was located in a private rented Building up to 1961. The Government Building was completed in 1961 and after that the school is housed in that building.
A Muslim and a Hindu Hostel were attached to this school since it was A.V School. Formerly Local Board’s Building was provided for Hostel. But when the school was raised to High School, the number of Inmates in the Hostel increased and the Hostel students resided in rented buildings (houses) too. In 1958, a new Hostel building was constructed. That was dilapidated in 1977. The Hostel Students then faced un-told residential problems. However the then Head Master Mr. Muhammad Usman Memon solved their problem by making residential arrangement in School Building. He moved authorities on personal level for providing a Hostel Building. Dr. Muhammad Saleh Memon an old student of this School and then Secretary Health pursued this matter very vigorously and got the building sanctioned for the Hostel in 1978. The present Building consists of 13 Rooms, Common Room, Warden Room, Sick Room, Dining Hall, Store Room and a Kitchen. The Hostel has a beautiful Mosque where about 500 people can easily offer prayers at a time. This Mosque has been constructed on SELF HELP BASIS in 1985 with the un-tiring efforts of Mr. Muhammad Usman Memon Head Master on chair. Mr. Muhammad Ismail S/O Haji Abutalib Memon took keen interest in collection of funds and proved as the chief patron.
