The Work Starts

After the laziness of the Christams/New Year season, things have started happening again. We had applied for a grant to fund a rebuild of a classroom roof that was damaged in Cyclone Ivy 2004, the money came through just before Christmas and we went and spent it early this year. Then the materials arrived on a cargo ship and there was a nervous tension as we watched the packs of roofing iron swinging around on the crane as the ship bobbed in the swell and the crew tried to lower the goods into the punt to bring them ashore. It all made it to dry land safely and everyone went to work unloading...


Then the clean up began...


And then the coral was carried up from the beach...



And some cement mixed to seal the walls and repair some damage to the slab floor.


Timber was “bush-milled” and the trusses have been put together, so the roof is on it’s way!

Love the hard hats & safety boots(dad)Looks like lots of hard work. No cement mixer or crane for the trusses. Nic get your singing voice into tune to lift those trusses. Good to hear Min and PD are enjoying Port Vila. Love Mum
