The École Technique Officielle was a Salesian secondary school in Kigali, Rwanda. On April 11, 1994, during the 1994 Rwandan genocide, over 2,000 Rwandans were murdered by extremist militia.[1]

This event is the subject of the movie Shooting Dogs (also called Beyond the Gates) by Michael Caton-Jones.
