BACKGROUND

The school comprised four buildings: two cement structures and two in severe disrepair. One of the intact buildings housed the nursery and kindergarten, while the other contained three classrooms, a library, and a teacher’s room. The remaining two buildings, constructed in 1966 and 1997, were in a state of advanced decay. The 1966 structure served mainly for storage and wasn’t urgently in need of replacement. The other building, with six classrooms, showed visible cracks, deteriorating floors, and termite-infested wooden trusses. Its condition posed a significant safety risk to students and teachers.

OUTCOMES

The new building at Nong Hai Khok Primary School consists of 6 furnished classrooms. The classrooms offer a safe and more motivating learning environment for the students. 4 new toilets have also been built at Nong Hai Khok Primary to improve sanitation standards and prevent hygiene-related illnesses. Currently, the school employs 11 teachers and serves 271 students. With a quality learning environment parents from Nong Hai Khok Village are encouraged to allow their children to pursue education and children are incentivised to continue and finish their primary education.
