Our new kindergarden block in St‑Anthony's School, Dugawar is ready to welcome students ! Classes from Nursery to 1 will be moving here from the Primary school building. We hope that it will transform the lives of thousands of children. Thank you for helping us to make it happen. As a reminder, we decided the construction of this new building in the campus, because the Primary school building is totally full.
The foundation work and the first structure of the building was ready by the end of March and the remaining work was completed after the lockdown was eased, during the last three months. As mentioned earlier, the building with tin sheet roof reduced the construction cost. This type of buildings are common in South India, but not existing in North India. Roy Mathews, our director, who comes from the South has supervised and used his know-how in this building. The iron roofing work was given to the welder in the village of Asmoli and the work was closely supervised. The furniture for the children were made out of the old window pans of our main building which had lost their colours. Roy Mathews has transformed our school campus with creativity and he is expert in making use of the waste materials from the campus. More about it later.
