After the traditional sod cutting ceremony, which blesses the ground, work on site could begin. The team started with marking out the site and testing the ground conditions.
The site at Saltpond in the Mfantseman district, will have a two classroom kindergarten school. The school will also include a kitchen, storeroom and office, age and gender appropriate toilets, outside teaching areas, a playground and rainwater harvesting system providing safe water for cooking, washing and drinking.
The perimeter safety fence is in place and the foundation trenches have been prepared. Wooden formwork has been fitted ready for the foundations to be poured. You will also see some steel frames in the photos, these are rebars which will be placed in the foundations to strengthen it and will also form part of the columns.
