We are forging ahead with our hostel refurbishment and again we have been incredibly fortunate to have successfully raised £10,000 for the next stage which will include building a ceiling in the girls’ dormitory. At the moment, the lack of a ceiling creates high temperatures in the dormitory making it almost impossible, if not only extremely uncomfortable, to live and sleep in. Then come the rains it’s incredibly noisy and again difficult to live and sleep in. The floor has also begun to wear away creating a lot of dust and debris under foot so we will replace this with tiling. We have also agreed to build a new recreation room which will allow the girls to unwind after school, do homework sitting at a table or even watch a DVD or TV if we can get the equipment cheaply enough. The bathroom cubicles are not the most hygienic of places so we will also tile these. This will also mean an improvement in drainage and damp and create a much better place to live in.
