For the learners and teachers of the Heatherdale Secondary School in Bloemfontein, happiness is the new school hall.

It was officially handed over for use by the Free State Department of Education at a ceremony on Friday (18/08).

The provincial department allocated R7 429 729,92 for the construction of the hall, which reportedly created temporary employment for 23 people during the six months of construction.

The facility fulfils the commitment the department made during the 2017-’18 budget speech, to ensure that the school’s infrastructure remains a priority.

The hall will be used as an examination centre, as well as to host educational programmes and community activities.

The size of the hall is 1 200 m2 and it accommodates 1 000 learners. It has a stage, ablution facilities, kitchen, store room and changing rooms with ­showers.

Adv. Tsoarelo Malakoane, superintendent of the department, has advised the learners, school governing body and teachers, as well as members of the community, to take care of the school hall and to guard it against any form of criminality which would result in damage to the much-needed facility.

He said the hall had been built with the clear aim of furthering the development of the community.
