On June 5th we were able to begin the process of wiring the classrooms! With your donations, we have purchased the electrical materials including wires, pipes, socket boxes other accessories for the electrical work. At this point, we are able to pay half of the payment for the labor. The electricians will not route the wires through the piping until we are ready to install the plywood ceiling. Your continued support will help us complete this portion of the project! We will be sharing some photos of the piping installation along with this update.
Hello everyone! In the past few weeks, construction has been moving along quickly! We have been able to fill all of the classrooms with gravel sand, and we are finishing watering and compacting it so that we can top off the sand before pouring the concrete for the floors. The ceiling joists are complete, and we will post a video soon to show you the work being done on the last two classrooms. As mentioned in our last update, we have collected estimates for the electrical materials, including labor costs for the electrical work. We also have estimates for constructing the ceiling with plywood and ceiling buttons; the plywood has already been purchased. These estimates are listed below.
The Prince & Princess Academy Project Team have filled 3 classrooms with gravel sand preparing the ground for floor works and the carpenters have worked on the ceiling joints. A video update will be posted soon.
We have several updates for you, as much has happened since the last time we posted! Because of your donations and support, the roofing for the school is complete! The carpenters are working on ceiling joints now, and we have purchased some gravel sand to fill the classrooms. So far we have enough to fill 3 of the rooms, but we still need to buy more for the other two classrooms, as well as labor to perform the work.
We will soon take estimates for the remainder of the cost, plus the amount needed for electrical work, including the wires that pass through the ceilings and walls to provide lights, outlets and fans in the classrooms. As always, thank you for helping us make this project possible! Your continued support makes a huge difference and we look forward to seeing these next tasks underway.
The Prince & Princess Academy Project Team wishes to thank Students of Ruusuvuoren Koulu ( Rose Mountain School) from Finland for donating $865 to support the roofing of the Prince & Princess Academy building. The Team appreciate your immense contribution. It is amazing when those who love to learn share their passion with other hopeful students!
The Prince & Princess Academy Project Team will erect the Flag of Finland in the school to honour the students of Ruusuvuoren Koulu when it is completed.
We hope your 2018 is off to a great start! It’s hard to believe we are already almost three months in! It’s been a while since we last posted, but we have an update for you. The Prince and Princess Academy Project Team has purchased ALL of the roofing materials! We would like to say a big “thank you” to everyone who has helped raise the money that went toward reaching this goal! We are now trying to raise the GHȻ 3,000 [$673 (USD), €550] to pay the carpenters to begin roofing the school. With your help, we can make this happen! Once we have raised this amount, we can continue construction! We are looking forward to making that big announcement.
