KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): A newly constructed building for a high school was inaugurated in this capital city of southern Kandahar province on Tuesday.

Costing above 30000 American dollars, the school building in the ninth police district took one year to complete, said provincial education director Mufti Qudratullah Wesal.

He said the building funded by UNHCR had the capacity to accommodate 400 students. Previously the high school was operated in rented house, which was not a suitable place for students.

Kandahar governor Mualvi Hayatullah Mubarak on the occasion called on the United Nations and other aid giving agencies to increase their cooperation with Afghanistan in area of education.

Local residents expressed happiness over the inauguration of the new school building.

Agha Wali Barani, a local resident, said many girls and boys would be able to study in a proper environment. He urged the government to pave the ground for girls to study beyond seventh class.
