  • Description

    In Jordan, schools are re-opening as peace returns to the country after the fighting of the past two months. At the Wahdat Camp near Amman, 300 teachers and 15,000 pupils returned yesterday (Tuesday) to their lessons in what is left of their school. It was badly damaged in the recent fighting and the pupils will have to be taught in shifts in the sections of it that are still serviceable.

    The school ??? the Wahdat Camp was built by the United Nations relief and works agency (UNRWA) and was completed in the summer of this year. This autumn term was to have been the first in which all pupils could be housed and taught in their own classrooms. Now, because much of the school has been destroyed, they will be taught because much of the school has been destroyed, they will be taught in shifts - seniors in the morning, juniors in the afternoon.

    The school is famed for the murals done by the pupils. One of them was sent to the World Fair in the United States.
