The last Saturday before school starts, most families relax, spend a last day at the beach or head over to Kaibo – but not the parents, staff and students of Grace Christian Academy in West Bay.
At the crack of dawn, a workforce of more than 50 met on the school grounds to scrape, paint and move debris from the ongoing building project.
The school, which was virtually destroyed in Hurricane Ivan in 2004, reopened last year. The goal of the current year is to complete the second phase of the campus as early as is possible, stated a press release.
‘The school family committed to doing whatever they could to cut project costs by doing the work themselves, and this is a glowing example of that commitment,’ the release said.
Even the students came out in force to chip in. Among the many parents involved were Tim Adam of C&W, Frazer Lindsay of PWC, Erwin Dikau of Butterfield Bank and Andrew Johnson of Wilming.
