DILI, 19 december 2023 (TATOLI) – The Ministry of Education will renovate 1,500 damaged classrooms of  many schools across the country in order to guarantee good school infrastructure for teaching and learning.

“The Ministry therefore has carried out a survey and identified the schools with damaged classrooms. According to the results of the survey, around 1,500 classrooms need to be renovated,” Education Minister Dulce de Jesus told reporters.

He said that the renovation of education infrastructure will be carried out in stages during the five years of the current government.

“I will ensure the renovation of these schools is completed by the end of my term in 2028,” De Jesus said.

The minister pledged to allocate between US$15 to US$30 million every year for the renovation of damaged schools across the country.

Previously, the VIII Constitutional Government through the Ministry of Education had built 180 schools with a total of 450 classrooms.

De Jesus said that providing students with the best possible learning environment will assist them to reach their potential.

“It is an essential part of providing students with the best possible learning environment and opportunities to reach their potential. Classrooms that are well-equipped with good-quality furniture can create an atmosphere for success,” Minister concluded.
