The New School Building

Due to the snowstorm and Sichuan earthquake in China, the progress of this project (Pingzi Primary School Reconstruction Project) was seriously affected. As estimated, the project will be completed in Sept 2008 instead of March 2008. Our programme colleague has visited the project site in July this year and noticed that the following items of the project have already completed in April, they include:

- A concrete-integrated school building of 196 m2 with 4 classrooms and 2 staff rooms. - A squat toilet with 4 stalls - Smoothed playground with planting

Students will be studying in this new-reconstructed school in the coming Sept this year.

The newly-reconstructed school building and its facilities could enable 60 school children in Gaoqiao Township of Daguan Country. To study in safe and stable environment to better equip themselves for lifting out from poverty.

Both Pingzi Primary School and Chayuan Primary School were completed before Sept 2008. The newly-reconstructed school buildings and its facilities could enable children to study and teachers to teach in a safe and stable environment.
