This project will be a major facelift for the school, which will see the construction of an additional two-classroom block, as well as two new four-cubicle ablution blocks with water, the installation of water reticulation and fencing at the school.
“We remain committed to supporting the communities of OCT and to ongoing community development in the area. We are grateful for our collaboration with the sub-district council and thrilled to be bringing this inspiring project to fruition – especially one with vital importance to the community of Eretsha”, added Moalosi Lebekwe, Wilderness Botswana Stakeholder Manager.
During his address, Deputy Permanent Secretary, Mr Morapedi, stated: “Let me take this moment to sincerely commend and thank CITW as patriots, for painstakingly undertaking this major development for the construction of required education facilities at their own cost, to meet the standard requirements of the school”.
Eretsha Primary School has an enrolment of over 200 children. Currently the school has one block of two classrooms, and a few buildings loaned to the school by the OCT. The planned construction of the two classrooms, ablution facilities for boys and girls, and the fencing and running water will ensure that the children enjoy a conducive and enabling educational environment that will lead to academic excellence.
