Building the new YouNiang Primary School of ZaiBian town

The situation of the overlay area of YouNiang primary school

This school will overlay 3 villages – YouNiang, BaiDui and BaiXia. YouNiang village has 9 residents’ groups, 6 natural stockades, 256 households and 1216 people in total; BaiDui village has 3 residents’ groups, 2 natural stockades, 86 households and 421 people in total; BaiXia village has 5 residents’ group, 4 natural stockades, 119 households and 562 people in total.

The basic situation of YouNiang primary school

The school is a village level primary school in YouNiang village, ZaiBian town. And it is 14km away from the town government, 117km away from the CongJiang County. The school serves for more than 2147 people within the 8km around. And presently has 5 classes with 160 students (98 female and 6 teaching and administrative staff).

With the further adjustment of the layout of the school, the students from each teaching school around are adding up. And the residents in this area scattered, so another two primary schools here will be merged, the students in this school will become more. So the classrooms for this school will be not enough.

Besides, except 130 students from YouNiang village and BaiDui village not board at school, another 30 students need to live in the school. But without the boarding place they have to stay in the relatives’ home near the school.

So it is urgent to build a new school. At the same time will make the old wooden school building as students’ laboratory and also their dormitory.

In addition, the school also needs a new toilet instead of the old small wooden one
