Fran applied for this project – to conduct building works at two schools in South Africa, – via her college, North Kent. They had already awarded her the Principal’s Award and Apprentice of the Year Award.
Work began in the Township, located near Cape Town, at 8 o’clock in the morning. The volunteers were split into groups with building works across a variety of disciplines. One of the first projects included the maintenance of four classrooms, including painting and building bookcases.
Maintenance work continued to renovate a security hut and two toilet blocks. Building works were also needed on external benches and pathways between schools and classrooms. The volunteers also helped with marking out a basketball court. During the words at the schools, children would sing and read to the volunteers at lunchtime.
