Category: Kuwait

Assistant Undersecretary for Educational Installation and Planning Affairs at Ministry of Education Dr Khalid Al-Rashid announced the completion of preparation of a plan to study the quality of drinking water in all public schools using morphological and chemical tests with the cooperation of Kuwait Institute for Scientific Research (KISR), reports Al-Rai daily.

Al-Rashid indicated that the plan is in its last phase and it will be applied immediately after the final approval is obtained. Meanwhile, Director General for Technical Affairs at Environment Protection Authority (EPA) Mohammad Al-Enezi stressed the need to clean the water cooler and change the filters and internal systems periodically for ensuring clean drinking water is provided in all schools and educational institutions.

He said a team from EPA visited four schools in Mubarak Al-Kabeer to check the water quality and they found all filters of the water coolers are clean and all the tanks were changed during the semester holidays. Also, Dr Khalid Al-Rashid revealed the intention of the ministry to build additional stories in some governmental schools to tackle the issue related to student density in the three educational levels.

However, Kuwait Municipality dismissed the educational proposal, declaring that the level permitted for buildings within private residential areas is only three floors — ground, first and second fl oors. In a letter he forwarded to Undersecretary of Ministry of Education Dr Haitham Al-Atari, Director General of Kuwait Municipality Ahmad Al-Manfouhi indicated that the number of Kuwaiti residents in investment residential areas is very few compared to the spaces allocated for governmental schools in those areas. He said the number of stories is allowed to be increased in public schools that are located in the investment residential areas.
