HA NOI (VNS)— Construction on Con Co Island's only kindergarten and primary school in central Quang Tri Province, has kicked off and will be built with a fund of VND5 billion ($238,000).
Hoa Phong Ba School, will eventually span area of 1,800 square metres and include classrooms for pre-school and primary school students, rooms for teachers, canteens and additional facilities.
The new school replaces a previous kindergarten built on the island that was destroyed by a storm late last year. The destruction forced teachers and students to relocate to temporary classrooms.
At the inauguration ceremony, Minister of Education and Training Pham Vu Luan said the kindergarten-primary school facility would help meet the demand for education on the island by removing the need to move to the mainland. — VNS
