Be a part of new all girls primary school!
Our new all girls primary school is coming along beautifully! Board members Dawn McMullan and Angela Lovell visited the school last month and participated in teacher interviews. Now, four teachers have been hired — one main teacher and one assistant for each of the two classrooms. We are starting with one first grade classroom and one second grade classroom to educate a total of 80 girls.
Here are some of the costs we have left before our September opening:
• Tables and chairs for our 80 students (half in first grade, half in second). The chairs are $12 each and 14 tables are $150 each. TOTAL: $3,060
• Tables and chairs for our four teachers (two for each classroom). The tables are $180 each, chairs are $12 each. TOTAL: $408
• $2200 to build bathrooms for the entire school (able to accommodate even once we have finished all six planned grades at the school).
Stay tuned here for photos of the construction and our amazing carpenter, who is ready to get to work on those tables and chairs!
