May 2016 – San Antonio School Inaugurated
May 24, 2016, is a day that will live on in the memory of every in the San Antonio Community. The ceremonial ribbon was cut to inaugurate a new classroom for this amazing community.
Previously, over 60 students between preschool and Grade 6 were learning in a crowded one classroom school. Learning was almost impossible for these students, but they travelled from far and wide for the opportunity to learn. Some students walked over 6km to get to class everyday.
The new classroom will give all of the students a safe and secure space to get a dignified education and will encourage other children within the community to enroll in school for the first time.
SchoolBOX would like to thank a wonderful volunteer group that travelled to Nicaragua to help construct the school in April as well as all of our wonderful supporters and donors for making this project a reality.
Please check out the video below to learn a little but more about this project.
The students could no be happier with their new classroom at the San Antonio School.
