During the recent school holidays a team contracted by Southey Contracting and approved by the Divisional Managing Director, Mr Rob Ross, son of Mrs Elizabeth Ross, one our founding members, came and gave our BIG SHED and wooden cabin classrooms a face lift.
At one stage, the BIG SHED was the entire school but now we have 4 additional wooden cabin classrooms.
Before the face lift, the BIG SHED had carpet tiles in the classrooms.
These were virtually impossible to keep clean and even though we swept daily, and deep cleaned twice a year, I was always horrified at the dirt that came out – the water was literally thick black mud!
Not anymore, the carpet tiles are gone and have been replaced with a durable, practical, clean and bright vinyl tile.
It literally makes the room look twice the size, is so easy to clean and has brightened up the BIG shed.
We love our wooden cabin classrooms, but they are like saunas in summer. The rooves have all been painted with a special insulation paint to keep the heat out and the cooler air in. Roll on summer – we’re prepared for you.
Special thanks to Willemien Stopforth from Southeys and Clint Jones who drove this project and made sure it all happened as planned.
