Most schools in Dunoon do not have enough space for the number of kids attending the school every day. Our partnerschool Pitter Patter was facing the same issue. The building served as a school and the home of the principal Chantel and her family at the same time. Therefore, the school had only three classrooms for 50 children and 15 babies.
In December 2022, we tackled the issue of space shortage! We rebuilt the entire building and separated the school from the family home. The result speaks for itself! The upper floor is the new home of Chantel, her husband and their three daughters and the whole lower floor is now divided into eight classrooms, four toilets and a kitchen. At the end of March 2023, the building project was completed and the school was able to celebrate its reopening!
