Building 8 new classrooms
La Salle Girls High School in Gokhuwal, on the outskirts of Faisalabad is embarking on a large scale construction of 8 new classrooms, a staffroom, computer lab and toilet block. The school is owned by the De La Salle Brothers and has been in operation since 1996, since then female participation in education, in Pakistan has increased and the brothers hope the new classrooms will keep up with the steady growth in student population.
The Brothers and Principal Ms. Nasreen Akhter want to provide the students with facilities to cater for current and potential students in an area, whilst also enhancing the curriculum offered by the school. Most importantly, this construction project will enable female students and staff to access bathrooms that are safe and adequate for their needs.
The total cost of this project is AUD 145,000 and is well underway. However, an estimated AUD 70,000 is further required to furnish the classrooms, staffroom, computer lab and finish the entry landscaping. The Lasallian Foundation wishes to thank Obrien Foundation who contributed to this project and the Australian network of schools who work tirelessly to fundraise in their local settings. Without such a combined effort the construction of significant and life changing buildings would not be possible.
