Three new schools will be constructed in Region One as part of the Ministry of Education’s quest to achieve universal education. These schools will be constructed in Huradiah in the Moruca subdistrict, Waramuri, and Kwebana.
Following a consultation with residents of Huradiah village, Moruca Sub-region, a new primary school will be built in the community, catering to 250 pupils.
To receive an education, pupils in the village travel across the Moruca river to attend the Santa Rosa Primary School, which is currently overcrowded.
