BACKGROUND

Gondang 1 Primary School is located amongst the homes of the Gondang Village community, where most families make their living as farmers. All of the school’s buildings were badly damaged in the earthquakes of 2018. Seven classrooms, including the original buildings constructed by the Dutch in 1920, have been restored or rebuilt and are still in use.However, class numbers are very large and the classrooms are overflowing, making learning conditions difficult – one class is currently operating in the prayer room. To make class numbers more manageable and conditions less cramped, two of the seven class groups need to be split in two. To do this, two additional classrooms were needed.

OUTCOMES

SDN 1 Gondang Block School consists of two fully furnished classrooms fitted with lights, fans, and power points and fully furnished with desks and chairs, whiteboards, a filing cabinet, and a storage cupboard. This permanent structure provides a safe and motivating learning environment for the students and teachers. Parents will feel comfortable knowing that the Block School is earthquake-resistant, which will encourage them to allow their children to pursue education. 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.
