Building an IT lab for Uduwila School

Posted on by Jackie

Uduwila was one of the first schools we created a computer lab for back in 2007.Uduwila IT Lab 2

However, it was located in a tiny room attached to a far larger library renovation project.

The school quickly outgrew it and had been asking us for a new one for some years.

We were very grateful to Barclays Bank for providing the funds to supply a proper computer lab for the school.

The donation enabled us to renovate a disused classroom.

This involved installing a new roof, tiling the floor, re-plastering and painting, fixing glass windows and wiring the room.

This included providing flat screen monitors, which use electricity.

The old computer room is now being used a staff room for the teachers.
