There is an increasing demand for primary school teaching in our area, and we currently do not have the space to allow students to continue up to the final primary year. Instead children have had to go elsewhere after Grade 9. This has also meant that we have had to sponsor older children at St Nicholas Village to go to other schools in our area or further afield.
The Parent Teacher Association has been asking us if we can provide for the full primary school range, up to Grade 12. This we are now nearing the ability to do, a major development in the life of the centre, which would not
have been possible without the fantastic financial and planning support of our Friends of Makeni in Holland.
The building and improvements work is scheduled to run into June of this year. There will be a new classroom block to accommodate Grades 10 to 12 as well as an office and a staff room. The higher grades also require a science block, which has been achieved by upgrading of the electronics school facilities. This lab will now be shared with the Electronics department.
