Many of you may recall when we reported in May 2019, that Mellon Educate were appointed to the Western Cape Educational Departments Schools Construction Framework Panel, as approved contractors. We are delighted to now share with you photographs and video (to follow) of the most recently completed school at Malmesbury, which is situated about 70km north east of Cape Town and has 1355 students.
Despite Covid19, Theo, Josh and all at Mellon Educate have continued the fantastic work of our charity. Our team constructed 16 classrooms over two storeys and the project also includes toilet/ablution facilities and play areas for the children. This is a very important project for the charity as it is the first (hopefully of many) commercial school building projects which provides vital funding towards our many educational programmes.
While we are all so disappointed not to be travelling to Cape Town this November we are continuing our efforts on the ground, and while we do not have all of our wonderful volunteers building with us, we are endeavouring to continue with our school building programme on a smaller scale. We will have more exciting news on this soon!
