We need a new multi-purpose building at Watarrka Primary School so older students can continue in the school system.
The Northern Territory Education Department has granted Watarrka Primary School approval to teach students up to Year 10. The Watarrka Foundation's dream is to build a new secondary school on country in the near future, but in the mean time we want to facilitate continued learning of older students by constructing a multi-purpose building within the school.
The school currently has only one classroom and desperately needs the new $400,000 building. The Foundation plans to commence construction in November 2017 and complete the building by 1 February 2018. It will provide an immediate solution to children currently at the Watarrka Primary School who will have to move to a secondary school in the near future. The building includes a classroom, computer room, a fully equipped kitchen and an accommodation unit.
We only have a small window of opportunity before the weather gets too hot for any building to occur. We need to start building this classroom now, ready for the start of term in 2018.
