The Director and staff do an outstanding job teaching the students and the government has recently constructed a large canteen area. A recent Australian Government Foreign Affairs and Trade grant enabled the upgrade of the whole sanitation system. There is an urgent need to provide 2 liters of clean drinking water to the canteen
Similar health screening will also take place in all the Koh Sirae education centres comprising of 2000 students. As well as health there will also be nutrition. Each child will be assessed for improved nutrition. The high levels of toxins in and around Koh Sirae in many cases lead to decreased immune systems and potential risk of infections, infestations and general poor health which can lead to reduced attendance at school.
