The third project is "Qatar Schools Development Programme – Package 1". The group has already completed about 37% of the project's stages. These were disclosed at the Cityscape Qatar, which will conclude Tuesday.
The "Qatar Schools Development Programme – Package 1" comes in line with the law regulating the partnership between the public and private sectors. Barwa Real Estate Group and Ashghal had signed the first-of-its-kind partnership agreement between the public and private sectors in the educational field.
As per the agreement, Barwa Real Estate will develop eight public schools by the year 2022 and provide maintenance support for such schools over a period of 25 years.
Then, the schools will be handed over to the Ministry of Education and Higher Education immediately upon the completion of construction works. The first package includes two primary schools, two preparatory schools, and four secondary schools.
Each of the new schools will offer 30 classes, including allocated classes and facilities for the persons with special needs. Classes will accommodate 786 students according to the approved design model.
Moreover, the schools will have dedicated and equipped educational facilities, including labs of science, linguistics, IT, sports, arts, activities as well as libraries. Schools will also offer outdoor spaces, sports fields, car parks and service buildings.
"This type of public-private partnership aims to enhance the private sector’s contribution to the implementation of major state projects in order to achieve economic development and encourage competition and innovation," Barwa said.
