The human conveyor belt and concrete mixers went into action once again and Rolal's new Senior Secondary School has a new ceiling / first floor.
An enormous team of water carriers, cooks, cement fetchers, concrete mixers, concrete shovelers, concrete passers, concrete squashers and flatteners were mobilised by Dunia and the Rolal staff. Parents, students, staff and the local community were all drafted in for a whole day operation. Organised into three teams with a competition going between them, they managed to concrete an enormous area taking the construction through a very important phase.
Now, all that is left, to have the building operational and ready for its new students for the summer school, is the finishing touches: cupboards, plastering, doors and the likes.
The whole team did an amazing job and are congratulated for all their hard work and contribution to this signficant development in the Port Loko District.
