A large colony of bats which had taken up residence in the Shorobe Public Primary School buildings has finally been gotten rid, thanks to the Elephant Havens Wildlife Foundation that recently renovated all the buildings that were affected.

The bats had made their way into the buildings’ ceilings leading to an unhealthy environment where a foul smell from their droppings that became a health hazard to the teachers and learners.

Elephant Havens Foundation then came to the rescue and engaged a contractor to help remove all the bats and renovate the ceilings and roof tops of the affected classrooms.

The agreement was finally made with a contractor, ‘Gwada Investment’ which then got to work immediately a day after the schools closed on the 6th of April.  The works were anticipated to be completed on the 21st of the same month but the contractor was able to finish earlier, on the 17th of April.

An inspection was conducted on Wednesday, April 19th to make sure that the teachers and learners come back to a clean, healthy, and conducive environment for learning.

The foundation’s co-Founder Boago Poloko said they were impressed with the smooth sailing of the project applauding that the contractor was able to complete the project through the help of some community members who volunteered their manpower.

Poloko indicated that this was the first phase of the project where 3 blocks compromising of 6 classrooms was repaired. He indicated that the 2nd phase which will be the last will be done in August after school’s end of second term.

For her part, the Shorobe Public Primary School Head of Department Peggy Moloi appreciated the foundation for their intervention noting that the learning process in their school had not been easy as the odour from the ceiling caused by the bats was disturbing.

“We were all excited when we entered the classrooms for inspection, they were so clean and there was absolutely no smell at all,” Moloi said.

She happily said the school management and teachers were  looking forward to going back to the classrooms when schools re-open next week.
