Update: April, 16/2013 - 09:13

HA NOI (VNS)— The number of students enrolled in first grade this year surged by over 11,000 due to the 2007 baby boom, according to the Ha Noi Department of Education and Training.

Around 900,000 babies were born in 2007, the year of the Golden Pig in the lunar calendar, as many believed it was a particularly lucky year to give birth.

By 2023, the city plans to use five per cent of its total land area for public purposes and utilise unoccupied land for the construction of schools, said deputy chairwoman of the city people's committee Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc. — VNS
