On the building project this week, the team have been working away as they hit the home straight! The inside walling was completed and touch-ups made to the window frames. The skirting was also finished with the light blue, and with the rain stopping by mid-morning we had the green light to paint the steps and get the team up on the roof to do the frascia boards, flashings and the roof itself. With a big last push and real team effort the painting was finished and the build completed on time. An absolutely huge achievement by the team and something that we can all feel extremely proud of!
To mark the end of the building project, the Ratu (village chief) requested a Think Pacific logo to adorn the wall of the community centre. Rose’ design was chosen to represent the September 2010 gap year team and Rose had been busy paining her logo onto the community hall wall as a symbol of the achievements of the team and community.
After lunch the team were back on site to clear the area ready for the fun day and opening ceremony. By the afternoon we were able to relax inside and take a moment to reflect on the last 7 weeks of hard work and laughter. The hall that now stands proud is testament to the teams efforts, it’s been an unbelievable build and the official opening on Saturday should be a day to remember for the entire village and island community!
