Frankfield Primary gets proper bathroom facilities
THE FRANKFIELD Primary and Infant School was established in 1910, and over the years, successive school administration has toiled hard to keep its facilities in working order. Its latest project was the rehabilitation of the upper school bathrooms, which was officially reopened in time for the new school year.
Vasper Scarlett, principal of the institution, said in 2012, they realised that the bathroom facilities were in a deplorable condition, and as such, decided to embark on a project to renovate them.
“We tried many different options, but to no avail, so we took the initiative and decided that from a school perspective, we would at least try to do it on our own,” he told Rural Xpress.
Scarlett said the vice-principal was also instrumental, as she was able to secure a significant donation from a member of the community.
Food For The Poor donated the tiles, which would have cost the school a tidy sum, while the rest of the money came from fundraising activities as a result of the effort of teachers and students, which amounted to more than $100,000.
