Primary School

Restoration of old Primary School plus Extension to double capacity and accommodate growth

We have a team of architects from Min Wee Architectural Company in Kuching who have generously gifted us their time and expertise to design the new primary school plans and draw these up for us. They are also helping with the strengthening of the foundations of the existing school, along with some construction on site. They are an amazing team of people and are helping us further by asking their friends to donate money and resources to the project so it can be completed and put to its intended use ASAP for the benefit of the children. We would sincerely like to thank Min Wee, the owner of the company, his son Sean, Leong Gian Wen, Jonathan Law the engineer, and the great team architects who have all given of their time, resources and dedication. The construction cost to complete the school building will be $200K NZD which will provide us with 12 new classrooms.

They organised competitions in an inter-team format, playing games, shuttle run relays and picking up tennis balls. The children absolutely loved this time of fun and games.
