50 schools in Quang Binh remain closed due to floods


QĐND – Thursday, October 14, 2010, 21:19 (GMT+7)

100,000 pupils in Quang Binh went to school after the province was severely hit by flood while 14,000 others, mostly at 50 kindergartens and primary schools, cannot do so as their schools were severely damaged.


According to Quang Binh Department for Education and Training, the recent flood submerged 500 schools, leading to the deaths of five children while many others were injured.


Since October 8th, when the flood water-level receded, many schools have been cleaned by volunteer youths. Quang Binh Youth Union mobilised 4,500 members to clean and repair chairs and tables in 500 schools throughout the province.


However, 50 schools in the province remain closed and 14,000 pupils cannot go to schools as the infrastructure of their schools was seriously damaged and they themselves lost many of their studying materials.
