How do you distinguish between singular and plural objects in this case? Does the m/wa prefix rule for singular and plural apply to nouns like "window"?

different nouns have different noun classes. 'Dirisha' is in the 'Ji/Ma' noun class, so its plural is 'Madirisha'. Check out the posts on noun classes under the Swahili Masterpost
