The logo bearing the insignia of Aminiya School will be preserved as a historical monument inside the school, says the school and the Education Ministry.
A senior official of the school said the logo was not removed from its original position to destroy it, but rather it would be placed in the school again. It was removed to facilitate students with additional amenities for sports, the official said.
The ministry said they also believe that the long-standing logo is an important historical artifact of the school, and thus would be placed in the school again as a monument.
With the completion of Aminiya School’s new 8-storey building, the old building has now been demolished.
When photos of the emblem being lifted off the building by a crane were circulated in social media, it was met with growing concern from former students of Aminiya School.
Although it is not clear when the logo was placed in the school, some people estimate that the logo has been inside the school for more than half a century.
