We are absolutely thrilled to share that Saltpond Model Kindergarten is now complete. The site team did a fantastic job and finished on schedule.
Saltpond is a two classroom school, with playground, outside teaching space, kitchen, storeroom/office and toilets. Saltpond differs slightly to some of our other schools in that the toilets are part of the main building block rather than a separate block. The school features colourful pivoting windows that allow air and light into the classrooms. The school also has a rainwater harvesting system, collecting water for washing, cooking and drinking.
The teachers have been busy setting up their classrooms with handmade teaching and learning materials which they have been introduced to as part of our Teacher Training programme and we hope you agree they look wonderful.
Children from the community are now enrolled at the school and lessons have started. Here are some photos of the children in their new school and taking part in self registration, story sharing and enjoying some role play in the Lorry Centre. The classrooms feature a number of learning centres that promote role play and peer learning and mimic real life places and scenarios, such as the Market Centre, Home Centre, Chiefs Palace, Medical Centre, and Construction Centre.
The school will hold an official opening ceremony soon, watch this space for more details ….
