Wardak schools to have new buildings
Additionally, the ministry would establish two agricultural high schools for training skilled technicians and workers in Nirkh and Syedabad districts, said Attaullah Khogyani, the governor’s spokesman.
The agricultural high school in the provincial capital, Maidan Shahr, has recently been upgraded to an institute.
Khogyani said the education ministry had approved hostels for 10 schools and the construction of boundary walls for another 46 schools.
Estimated to cost $400,000 (21,336,000afs), the structures are being built this academic year, according to the gubernatorial spokesman, who said new 20 primary schools have also been approved for Maidan Wardak.
Governor Abdul Majeed Khogyani said the establishment of a vocational institute and other schools had stopped Wardak residents from traveling to other provinces for the same purpose.
He thanked the education ministry and other organizations in making education process a success in his province, hoping new projects would follow soon.
Elsewhere, a newly-established agricultural high school has been opened in Balkh district of northern Balkh province, the provincial education director said.
Qais Mehrain said currently 58 students, including 15 girls, have been enrolled to the school.
