Ikkapalama Renovations

Posted on by mark

The principal of the school had been asking us for help for a long time and we were feeling slightly guilty because we liked the school and had done very little to date beyond fixing the English activity room.

The project involved finishing the junior school block where there was, as usual, open spaces instead of windows. We fixed grilles in place of windows around four classrooms at a cost of US$3,000.

This turned out to be more expensive than we had been hoping and was the result of rampant domestic inflation, which had pushed up the price of the iron bars we needed to make the grilles.

All the schools prefer grilles to windows. They last for longer than glass, which is easily smashed and they are better for letting air flow through the classrooms to mitigate the stifling heat.
