The school year has just began and the Iriyah has already started preparing for next year. Around two weeks ago, work began on building an elementary school on Rechov Ya’ar Hazeroah in the Nofim neighborhood. The first stage of construction is expected to last a month and includes preparing the site, drilling the foundation and preparing infrastructure. The school building and adjacent preschools will be built on a 2,500 meter lot. The elementary school building will include 18 classrooms, gym, sport field, technology rooms, library, resource rooms and courtyard. In addition, four new preschools will be built next to the school building. Work is expected to be completed in a year.
The Nofim neighborhood is being built in the western part of the city and will include around 1,850 housing units. The neighborhood, which will cover 955 dunams, will also include 9,500 square meters of commercial space, public buildings and green areas that will overlook Park Anabe and will be connected to adjacent neighborhoods through bridges and underpasses.
