THE Solomon Islands National University (SINU) and its School of Education and Humanity at Panatina Campus will soon have its own lecture theatre which will be an icon building for the university.
The School of Education and Humanity purposely need this new complex building to meet higher demand of the rising number of students in the future.
In an interview with the Dean Buka Misifea, he explained it’s very important for reconstruction to take place.
“All the buildings here were made during the colonial times and it needs to be removed.
“Our main aim is to get rid of the old one, and focus on building that has enough space for lecture theatre, offices and computer labs,” Mr. Misifea said.
“The admin office was supported to be moved to another building last month, but because renovation of the dormitories still in progress plus we yet to have confirmation from the construction company Kramer Ausenco Ltd for demolishing therefore the office was unable to relocate,” he said.
A statement from the renovation constructor, Silas Kiu said, the construction is expected to start at the end of this month when the renovation of the three dormitories are completed.
“The renovation starts in July 14th, and now we are heading towards the completion part of our work with painting,” he said.
The new lecture complex building will be an icon building for the university in which will accommodates more than three to four thousand students for lecturing with offices and computer labs.
Speaking to one of the students at Panatina campus she said, it’s very important for such building to be established.
“It is of great need, because of the rising number of population and the need to attend such soaring levels of education in our own country, instead of spending money on overseas studies,” she expressed.
