The classroom at Nyange Secondary School where six students were killed in 1997 during a cross border attack. The attackers told the students, gathered in a late night study session, to separate themselvesa s Hutu and Tutsi. When the students refused asnwering that they were Rwandans not Hutu or Tutsi  they were killed. They are memorialized on the school grounds and beyond as national Heroes. "If I could  speak to them today I would tell them that they are national heros. That the goverment policy of One Rwanda is the same as thier message of courage before thier killers." - Vincent Nsanza school teacher and prefect of discipline. Photo by Brendan bannon.
