No time to waste in rebuilding burnt-down school

Following the recent raging fires in the Van Stadens Gorge area in the Eastern Cape, we were quick off the mark to provide units when most of the buildings at Woodridge College and Preparatory School were burnt to the ground, forcing non-local borders and staff to evacuate the premises.

The school suffered devastating losses to its reception hall, main hall, some of the hostels, school church, junior classrooms and music school. Additionally, a number of private residences burnt down, displacing 39 teachers, members of ground staff and their families.

We were pleased to be able to respond rapidly and supply a total of 21 units, which cover nearly 1 000 m2 and accommodate up to 20 students per structure.
