BACKGROUND

Established in 1979, Ou Sralao Lech Primary School consisted of two buildings: one concrete and one wooden, housing a total of eight classrooms. While the concrete building, constructed in 2002 with three classrooms, remains in good condition, the wooden building with five classrooms is rapidly deteriorating. Supported by substandard timber columns on concrete piers, the wooden structure’s foundation walls are severely cracked, and the upper walls are infested with termites. Exposed to extreme weather conditions, the building offers little protection. Given its poor condition and safety risks, the school urgently requires replacement to provide students with a safe learning environment.

OUTCOMES

On 30 May 2018, construction started of a new school building with 4 fully furnished classrooms, to replace the ramshackle building with 5 classrooms for a safer and more motivating learning environment for the students. The construction of the new building emphasises the importance of education to the whole community and provides an incentive for the children to complete their primary education.
