AN UPDATE FROM MOVING SCHOOL 002
After a fantastic couple of days bringing the steel to site and installing the classroom frames, the next task was to fix all the floor joists in place and drill holes into the ceiling beams ready to take the roofing structure.
A few of the pupils spent their lunchtime lending a hand and helping us to paint more of the steel sections for their new classroom. It was great to see their enthusiasm and eagerness to help out on site.
The local community arrived on site ready to work and decided to build a walkway from the current school building to the new classrooms. Travelling to the nearest place we could source bamboo, several of the parents cut down 15 pieces of bamboo and then split and stripped the bamboo. They used the bamboo as a replacement for a metal frame to go at the bottom of the base of the walkway in preparation for a concrete mixture to be poured on top.
It was fantastic to have the local communities support and assistance in the school project. Both the students and parents were keen to see the Ironwood team working and have the ability to share their different skill sets.
Next to be installed was the metal roof structure and finally the Shera board flooring material for the classroom floor.
It is great to see the classroom structure taking form on site at New Road, we cannot wait to see the pupils using their new classroom buildings.
I look forward to updating you with final pictures of Moving School 002 very soon.
