The 2017 project included the construction of 2 new classrooms, including all fixtures and fittings required to ensure the classrooms were ready for the kids to commence their studies. Gatwe Primary School serves up to 400 students living in the local area.
One of the old classrooms at Gatwe Primary School posed a serious risk to the pupils as this was near collapsing. After two weeks of hard work and a fantastic team effort, we finished 2 classrooms at Gatwe Primary School.
