Some Schools In Kuwait May Close Due Electrical Problems
Ministry of Education announced Saturday that a number of schools are experiencing some technical problems after a wave of heavy rain gripping Kuwait since late Friday.
Classes at some schools with electrical problems may be suspended because “we do not want to risk our students’ lives,” said Ministry Acting Undersecretary Yousef Al-Najjar during an inspection tour at Al-Ahmadi Governorate.
Al-Najjar affirms that work is still underway to clean schools that have experienced some problems, but the difficulty lies in how to access some others due to hard conditions on surrounding streets.
He points out that there is a meeting grouping the ministry officials with Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Dr. Hamid Al-Azmi, due during the next few hours
The officials will examine schools’ condition amid impact of the rainy weather.
