Kindergarten and prep students benefit from recent repairs.
The roof of the building which houses the infant students at La Salle Girls’ High School in Gokhuwal, Pakistan, was in urgent need of repairs and renovations. The Principal, Ms. Nasreen Akhter, contacted the Lasallian Foundation requesting funds to repair the roof during the summer break in Pakistan. The roof had suffered water damage due to heavy rain and flooding in recent years. A water tank on the roof required relocation which exacerbated the problem . As it would be dangerous for the students to return to the classroom, the entire roof be demolished and rebuilt. The funds were also used to paint the roof and surrounding classrooms following the completion of the project.
The Lasallian Foundation commends Ms. Akhter for her swift management of this important project that ensured students were able to school with safe classrooms and limited disruption to their learning. This project was funded by a donation from St Michael’s College in Adelaide. St Michael’s College is one of a network of donors, schools and other benefactors whose donations to the Lasallian Foundation make a difference to the lives of students in Pakistan and Papua New Guinea.
