Renovation of Donated Schools in Myanmar

4th January 2011

The 'Road to Mandalay' charitable initiatives in Myanmar have been building schoolrooms for so long that re-decoration and renovation is required on the older properties. This work is also paid for by 'Road to Mandalay' and their donors.

Bagan School

At the end of 2010, the school building in Bagan was repainted inside and out. The building was erected around 2002 and has been used extensively since then. The redecoration had to be arranged for the Christmas and New Year period when the school would be closed.

This picture (by Dr. Hla Tun) shows the schoolroom in December 2010, soon after repainting. The donated building was built 8 years earlier.

I've made one visit to the school, on Sunday, 30th October 2011, the date of the official opening of the Bagan Medical Clinic. My post on the clinic opening includes a short piece on the school building and there are a few pictures around the school building here.

Shwe Kyet Yet High School

Another property renovated at the end of 2010 was the Shwe Kyet Yet High School. Parents and teachers co-operated in the organisation of the work which took a mason, a carpenter and a painter ten days to complete, finishing on 3rd January 2011.
