Building work on Bob Simson Secondary School makes progress

The Bob Simson school was virtually destroyed in a great storm a few years ago, so they have coped amazingly well in dire circumstances. Here is a photograph of their current school.


The photos below of the building work shows the reinforcing rods sticking out of the walls in places.  They aim to help withstand future storms.   The old mud bricks have been reused, and put together with proper cement, as well as  making some more with cement in them.

As this school serves a large agricultural area, the curriculum also includes some training in practical skills for their future lives.   Their old piggery building is currently being used as a classroom,  but when the classrooms are rebuilt ,  they will get some piglets from the Taiama piggery, and resume learning about rearing and breeding pigs.
