Opening the doors of the school to over 700 children was a historical event for us in Giriki.
The school is the first ever permanent structure in the area – but it represents more than class rooms, desks and chalk boards.
The Government is taking over the running of the school and representatives came to celebrate with the community on the opening day.
This is something phenomenal to the community who have never had representation or influence here – they have been ignored for nearly 30 years.
The school and your support, represents a transformation and, more importantly, the community have realised the potential that they have in themselves to change the future for their children. This is very special. I hope you will join me in being proud and happy to be part of the development this school – it is a massive step towards a future that is brighter and full of opportunities for everyone in Giriki. I hope this film will give you a sense of the occasion and help you picture the scale of the impact of the school on the community.
