After a successful opening, the school is now almost ready for use. The finishing touches are being made, and it's looking nice! The paths and fence are finished and in three weeks time we'll put up the slides, swings and seesaws. Finally, we'll lay green grass between the paths to give the school a fresh look. But, no school without students. Fortunately, many children want to attend our school. Since the opening, so many children have enrolled that we are now full! This is a wonderful start for the new school year and sign that parents in the Ekwamkrom area appreciate and believe in what we’ve been doing so far!
On January 25th, after 8 months of hard work, we finally had the official opening of the Meet Kate Academy, where we'll be teaching 150 students. With speeches of president Kelly de Vries, ambassador Peter R. de Vries and several honorary guests, it was a festive and special day.
The construction of the school literally cost blood, sweat and tears, but the result is magnificent! We are so very proud! The past few months we have documented the development of the construction and today we'd like to share it with you.
In the attachment you'll find our newsletter with pictures of the opening.To get a 30 second overview of the construction of the building, check out this film.
Meet Kate would like to thank everyone for contributing to the construction of this primary school. Without you, we couldn't have done it!
