ALIGEGEO Provincial Secondary School in Malaita Province wants electricity connected to its two new dormitories urgently.
A statement from the school said since the two dormitories were officially handed over to the school in June no electricity has been connected to the buildings to this day.
“Since the official handing over of the buildings to the school in June this year, six months later the buildings still stand idle without serving their purpose as the school still struggle to address the crowded dormitories,” the statement said.
It said the 2017 academic year is just a month away and the school’s administration wanted to see the two new dormitories used by its students.
The school then demanded an explanation from the responsible contractor and Solomon Power.
“The school has supported the project with $70,000 worth of materials and to see the two dormitories sit idle in the school compound is just unacceptable,” the statement said.
“Next year if the two dormitories are still without electricity, they will still be closed and this for sure will affect the school students’ accommodation on campus in 2017.”
The two new dormitories, one for girls and one for boys, can accommodate 96 beds.
“We want to see electricity connected to the two buildings as soon as possible before 2017 academic year starts in January,” the statement from the school said.
