Nimroz school gets modern building
ZARANJ (Pajhwok): Construction work on Malali Girls Intermediate School has been completed on Saturday, which would facilitate 1,500 students to study in an excellent environment, an official said.
Education Director Abdul Wahid Hikmat said earlier Zaranj, the provincial capital, had no girls’ school and the students used to study together with boys in different schools under open sky.
The new building, he said was built on modern designs and had computer labs and laboratories for scientific experiments.
Sardar Mohammad, head of the local council, said earlier 20 percent students preferred not to attend schools due to absence of class rooms and building.

According to Hikmat, as many as 85,000 students were being imparted education in 140 schools in Nimroz, with 40 percent of schools were without buildings.
