The school is taking shape...
Saturday, 19 May 2012 Written by fra Ivica Perić

The school is taking shapeOur school is finally taking shape! Hardly two weeks have passed since we began construction and the foundation has already been completed.

For our workers it was a major success due to the fact that on many of the past days they had been unable to work at all due to heavy rain and also because everything is done by hand, without the assistance of machines.

For the first several days, they’d just been digging... and digging... and digging the foundations. The construction site resembled an anthill.

I’m especially pleased with the fact that the contractor was quite amenable and accepted our suggestions, and so we are receiving a threefold benefit from the entire project!

The first benefit is the fact that the parish will get a real secondary school, the second one is that locals from Kivumu are being employed in the construction, and the third benefit is the fact that the students of the builders’ course of our Padri Vjeko Center are getting a chance to do practical work at a real construction site.

The contractor signed a contract stating that the first phase of the construction will be finished by September this year. This means that on January 1st, next year the first hundred-or-so students might be able to start their education in the first level of the Secondary Technical School.
