Ali Lootah, Under-Secretary of the Ministry of Works, accompanied by Khalid Shaheel, Director of School Buildings Department, and Ahmad Al Kharji, Manager of Umm Al Quwain Educational Zone, made a surprise visit to Al Arkam School in Umm Al Quwain only to find that at least 12 of the classrooms of the school had developed cracks in their walls. It was learnt that the construction of the school, which was built just six years ago after the approval by the zone administration, cost Dh12 million.
All relevant parties refused from commenting on the issue.
It was also learnt that two classrooms received maintenance touches just two months after completion of the school building. The school had been under maintenance till the end of the last school year.
Since the present cracks cannot be mended before next summer, two classrooms will be under periodical maintenance during evening session.
