Also, 1,452 toilets were inaugurated and are expected to address sanitary challenges that have been rampant in schools.
The Minister of State in Charge of Primary and Secondary Education Dr. Munyakazi Isaac presided over the inauguration of the classrooms in Gisagara District.
He said the classrooms will help address a number of challenges that hitherto faced learners.
“The classrooms will facilitate our children to study well with no congestion and pupils will walk shorter distances from their homes to schools which will help keep them from dropping out of schools. In the meantime, we are looking for a way to increase the school hours, and stop the double-shift system.”
