New buildings to make space for new students.

By Ramona Engler | Charity Coordinator

Although the We Are the Future School was able to reopen its doors in October, after Lockdown measures have been eased, the school is still dealing with the implications of the pandemic.

The government announced the possibility of a third wave of covid-19 in mid-June and announced a new curfew on the 1st of July. Most public events are put on hold again, and social distancing measures and face masks are mandatory again. Educational institutions, including the We Are the Future School are allowed to stay open for now, but strict wearing of face masks, hand washing and social distancing must be followed.

As the school’s classrooms are relatively small and the number of new students increases continually, having enough space to be able to adhere to the social distancing measures is a real challenge. Already before the announcement of the third wave the school decided to create new space, to allow for more students in the next school year.

The building of a new classroom started in spring, and after the foundations being laid quickly, the first walls are already up as well. We hope to be able to finish the constructions in time for the start of the new school year in autumn. The new building will change the school environment drastically and ensure that we will be able to keep the school open with new government regulations in place. Besides the current situation already making it difficult to meet the financial needs to run the school and the community garden, the new requirements add to this strain. The building materials, construction workers and even new furniture including desks and chairs have to be financed.

We are aware that you probably have a lot of changes and challenges to face, yet your support would be greatly appreciated and even just a small donation has a great impact to ensure the sustainability of our project.
