Overview of the Project
Established in the year 2000, Shree Sana KisanSahakari School at Chattredeurali-4 of Dhading district is a school with a vision to provide quality education to the children of the farmers.
The School has survived so far on donations given by various projects and organisations, but even with these generous donations a substantial amount of work is still required.
The building was constructed 13 years ago and today is still in a fragile condition with doors and windows not complete, the roof structure leaks, all of which hampers students, especially during winter and the rainy season.
The roof leaks in monsoon season and the temporary pathway leading up the school crosses over a river. There is no bridge and during the monsoon season, the river rises and it becomes extremely difficult for the children to cross.
The school requires adequate flooring, roofing, doors and windows, render to internal brickwork, external brick repairs, repointing and painting. The school has been built on a total area of 3,250m2 of land and, to be utilised to its full potential, needs to be enclosed with a perimeter wall for security purposes. The southern side of the school touches the river, so a retaining wall also needs to be constructed.
The school also requires a suitable drinking water supply and services to the toilet facilities creating better hygiene and sanitation. The source of water has already been identified, although storage tanks need to be built. The existing toilets are substandard and require suitable fixtures and fittings. Also the waste from these facilities requires the installation of a sewerage system.

Where this course will take You
Throughout Australia there is a growing need for skilled practitioners able to function effectively with the skills and knowledge of the traditional artisan.
While incorporating the essential practical and technological criteria associated with contemporary practices, there is also an increasing need to retain and maintain the values and techniques of the craft through conserving and restoring the character and appearance of period buildings.
Graduates from previous programs have obtained employment using the skills base obtained from attending these conservation courses.
