Having cost 120 million kwanzas each, the new primary schools were built under the Integrated Plan for the Intervention of Municipalities (PIIM).
Cited by Angop, Maria Antónia Nelumba, president of the Administrative Commission of Luanda (CAL), explained that these new classrooms at school 1150 in Maianga are in addition to the 12 that already existed (accommodating 1360 students).
This institution (which was inaugurated in 2018 by the President, João Lourenço) only taught classes up to the sixth grade, however, according to the president of CAL, from this moment on the school will have classes up to the ninth grade.
In turn, in Sambizanga, the new school was built from scratch and named school 1306 "Bernardo Jorge Martins Correia – Bangão" in order to honor the singer.
On the occasion, Cristino Mário Ndeitunga asked the teaching staff and students to conserve these structures and also mentioned Bangão.
Also quoted by Angop, the official classified the singer as a distinguished artist of the national culture and a "symbol of elegance". Thus, this recognition expresses a responsibility for both teachers and students, with a view to having professionals born from that school who carry out "elegant works", he considered.
Sports fields, offices, bathrooms, computer rooms, among others, are also part of the new schools, writes Angop.
