Future Phases for the Construction of Ipalo Christian Community School
Stage 2 of the works program will include the construction of a second classroom module, a staff room attached to the existing amenities block, a kitchen, additional toilet facilities and a covered play area for the children to play and eat their daily lunch meal.
The new kitchen will be an important element of the school as the lunch meal is often the only meal many of these children receive on any given day. Also in Stage 2, a kitchen garden and chicken run will be developed, which will help in providing fruit, vegetables, eggs and chicken for use in the preparation of daily meals. Some level of landscaping will also be developed, incorporating a variety of fruit trees.
STAGE 3 and Beyond
Future stages will include construction of several classroom modules, plus specialist modules for science, metal & woodwork and arts & crafts all powered by a solar installation. Some of these buildings will be used to teach trade skills to those students who do not progress to tertiary studies. Plans also include playing fields, student dormitory accommodation for those who may be rescued from abusive living situations, a manager’s residence and volunteers’ accommodation.
