Under the instruction, around 50,000 pupils from low-income families of under VND6 million a year who are studying at city and district public schools will enjoy an exemption of tuition and facility contribution for the 2006-2007 school year.

Parents of needy pupils should contact the teacher in charge of the class to obtain an application which must then be verified by district people’s committees before September 25.
