BACKGROUND

Santong 4 Primary School is located in the farming village of Sempakok, in the remote Kayangan district of North Lombok. The school lost all of its buildings in the earthquakes of 2018 and had not been supplied with any permanent structures. After the disaster, six temporary classrooms were constructed, which are now in a dilapidated condition. One of these classrooms is a makeshift shelter without walls, which provides little protection from the elements. The teachers were also without a dedicated space to meet and plan their learning activities, and there were insufficient toilet facilities for the students and staff. 

OUTCOMES

SDN 4 Santong Block School consists of one staff room and one fully furnished classroom fitted with lights, fans, and power points and fully furnished with desks and chairs, whiteboards, a filing cabinet, and a storage cupboard. Two new Block Toilets have also been built at the school to ensure improved sanitation standards and prevent hygiene-related illnesses. The construction of the new building and toilets emphasises the importance of education to the whole community and provides an incentive for the children to complete their primary education. These permanent structures provide a safe and motivating learning environment for the students. Parents will feel comfortable knowing that the Block School and Block Toilets are earthquake-resistant, which will encourage them to allow their children to pursue education.
