ASTANA, Kazakhstan, Sept. 3, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Bulat Utemuratov Foundation (the "Foundation") is pleased to announce the opening of a new municipal school in the town of Kosshy, in the Akmola region of Kazakhstan. It will become one of the leading schools in the country, providing an innovative and progressive curriculum for local children.
The Foundation has fully funded the 7.5 billion tenge ($16.5 million) project, which serves 3,000 students, and has now donated the completed school to the local government of Kosshy to own and operate.
The school has state-of-the-art educational facilities, including custom-built classrooms, recreational areas, modern workshops, an Information Technology (IT) center, laboratory, and art studio.
In addition, the school has numerous sports facilities, including a basketball and volleyball court, a stadium with a mini-soccer field and racetracks, as well as playgrounds.
Student well-being is a key objective, and the school has been made accessible with ramps and tactile pathways for students with visual and physical disabilities, while its 17,500 square meter grounds have been landscaped with local species of grass, trees and shrubs. .
Kazakhstan has experienced a significant increase in students in recent years: 400,000 first graders began their studies in 2021, which has placed a significant burden on schools, including Kosshy's. This project will provide much-needed educational facilities for local students, supporting the national "Comfortable School" initiative.
Almaz Sharman, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Bulat Utemuratov Foundation, commented: "Education is a key focus of the Foundation and I am delighted to open this state-of-the-art school. The shortage of quality educational facilities is a key issue both nationally as a local, and our new school will play an important role in helping the next generation of Kosshy students thrive."
