The second phase of the construction of new facilities for the International Community School has begun in Accra.
The new facilities represent a $7 million investment to expand the existing school in the capital.
The facilities include 47 classrooms, a general library, a 397-capacity auditorium, 2 laboratories, 2 ICT hubs, a media centre, 2 language rooms, learning and support centre, a conference room, and an administrative block.
In addition, a multi-purpose sports facility that will provide space for a football park, a gymnasium, 2 swimming pools, and a sandpit for the pre-school will be constructed.
The first phase of the Accra campus expansion project saw the completion of a magnificent 3-storey building that houses classrooms, a library, ICT laboratory, art rooms and residential facilities for students.
Director of the school, Dr. Charles Yeboah said, “the expansion of the Accra school is a sign of commitment of management to create an exciting educational, leisure and social hub for better school experience for students.”
He disclosed that the construction project was awarded to a local contractor because the school is committed to promoting the Made in Ghana agenda. According to Dr. Yeboah, over 80 skilled labour and apprentices from the local area have been currently employed on the project with the number likely to rise to over 120 in the next few months.
The project contractor, JAMEC expressed excitement at the opportunity to execute the project and promised to deliver to specifications. “We shall transform the site to deliver quality, safe and attractive learning environment for the students.”
The project is scheduled to be completed within 14 months.
