Rwanda is a beautiful country with a lot of rich history and amazing landforms. And let's not forget about the black gorillas. I wouldn't tell u to travel there if you didn't look Rwanda up. Well I'm here to tell you what Rwanda is all about!!!! Do u like museums, nature parks, oh do u like gorillas? Well this is what Rwanda is all about. Rwanda has a lot of good places to visit. 1. Volcanoes national park is an amazing place to go if you want to see gorillas, native animals, and walk on a wooden path that goes from tree to tree in the forest! 2. There's an anime art center. This is an area in the capital that you can go to if you want to see amazing art work that peopl have done. Now this is my favorite. 3. Lake Kivu. When you are in Rwanda you need to come here. It has canoeing, it's really peaceful out there, the people are nice, the land is beautiful. That is my favorite part of Rwanda. If you go there make sure you go.
These are just some of the beautiful places in Lake Kivu
Part H: school
There were no public schools in Rwanda until the 1950s and secondary education was then attainable only at a school founded in 1929 at Butare by Roman Catholic missionaries. With independence, Rwanda began a major expansion of its educational programs; in 1989, education accounted for 25.4% of total government expenditure. However, the Catholic Church continues to play the leading role in education. Education is free and compulsory for six years, generally for children ages 7 to 13, but the law is not widely enforced. Primary school is for six years, followed by three years of junior and three years of senior secondary education. Technical school programs are available for students at the secondary level. Most primary and secondary schools are under the direction of religious missions, but many receive state subsidies. The academic year runs from September to June.
