MIJAS: The Indira Gandhi centre aka the ‘tin school’

This term saw 156,700 kids go back to Malaga’s schools, boosted by a €15 million Junta investment in primary school books and €1.16 million of structural improvements across 39 schools.

Meanwhile the University of Malaga welcomed 7% more students this year.

Less thrilled were parents dropping kids off at Mijas’ Indira Gandhi centre aka the ‘tin school’ where 400 pupils will be taught in 20 temporary ‘rusty, leaky’ huts.
