Laos: Sunshine School
Laos: Our primary and secondary schools
Friday, 3 December 2010 (Manila Sector) Our primary and secondary schools were unseasonally closed during November and December 2009 due to the SE Asian Games event in Vientiane. This provided a perfect opportunity for our landlord to pull down the old buildings in the middle of the school yard and construct four new classrooms and a toilet block next to the two-storey secondary school building. Now we have a huge playground space in the middle of the school, though there are plans later this year to construct another few rooms along the back and front walls of the school.
Using much of the wood and roofing from the old buildings we were also able to construct a toilet and bathroom block and a staff house on our Don Koi land. With these facilities in place we hope in the near future to be able to bus the junior high school children to the land for sports activities.
