As part of its efforts to reduce the overcrowding at the Kato Secon-dary School in Region Eight, Minister of Education Priya Manickchand has announced that a modern secondary school will be built in another village, Kopi-nang and will cater for students from within that catchment area.

 In a short video which was posted on her Facebook page, the minister said that the school will be built on a plot of land which was given to them by a resident of the village of Kopinang and its Toshao.

“We came here to talk to residents and parents of students and have a look at the land that the toshao and village have given to us for us to build a secondary school… so we’re gonna be building a secondary school… residents and villagers have already begun to clear it for us.”
