The QR1.6 billion worth of schools have been handed over to the Supreme Education Council (SEC), ahead of the start of the new academic year next month.

In addition to creating upgraded facilities for existing schools, the buildings include nine new schools that will open this coming year, catering to 6,500 extra students, the SEC said in a statement in Arabic.

They are all independent (government-run) schools and kindergartens and are in locations across Qatar, according to a list published in The Peninsula.
