The High School – almost there

Our high school is well and truly on its way up. Phase I, the first six classrooms, is nearing completion and a second storey will be added next. The “arms” will then be built at each end, finally forming three sides of a rectangle. When completed, the school will accommodate a thousand pupils from Kovalam and the surrounding villages.

Progress was slowed down somewhat by searing heat in June and July and some heavy rains since have sometimes made the access roads impassable. But we are well on our way. The headmaster, staff and children are waiting in the wings and we hope the first bell for assembly will be sounding early next year.
