SUPPORT THE RENOVATION OF THE SCIENCE LABS

The Current state of the Science Building

SLGS has produced many astute scientists, doctors and professors including the Nobel nominee;Professor Christopher B Lynch. The previous generation of alumni have made significant contributions to the world of science and we want to provide the current generation of pupils with the same level of
training and innovation that will allow them to be intellectually curious about science, explore and have fun with it. Unfortunately, the science building which houses six labs is in a very bad state and in desperate need of repairs. There is no source of electricity or running water, the windows are broken and the roof leaks badly whenever it rains. This is not the kind of environment to nurture our young scientists. Thus, we have initiated this campaign to restore the science buliding in collaboration with the global alumni community, the PTA and the School board.

Current state of the Science Building

We need to:
● Renovate the biology, chemistry and physics labs and equip them to support and enhance their practical and experimental experience.
● Refurbish the entire building with new electrical wiring, water, gas, furniture, internet connection and lab equipment.
● Work with the teachers on incorporating science experiments into the curriculum.

What SLGS OBA wants to achieve

SLGS has produced many astute scientists, doctors and professors including the Nobel nominee;Professor Christopher B Lynch. The previous generation of alumni have made significant contributions to the world of science and we want to provide the current generation of pupils with the same level of
training and innovation that will allow them to be intellectually curious about science, explore and have fun with it. Unfortunately, the science building which houses six labs is in a very bad state and in desperate need of repairs. There is no source of electricity or running water, the windows are broken and the roof leaks badly whenever it rains. This is not the kind of environment to nurture our young scientists. Thus, we have initiated this campaign to restore the science buliding in collaboration with the global alumni community, the PTA and the School board.
We envision a complete overhaul of the building – new roof, remodelled labs, painted interior and exterior, replacement windows, fixing of the masonry cracks, rewiring the power provisions and a total upgrade of the plumbing system. The refurbishment has already started as we have mobilised funds to replace the entire roof of the building to solve the leaks as you can see in the picture below.
We have been able to raise $25,000 of our $180,000 target through some virtual fundraiser concerts organised during the 2020 Christmas period last year and we need your help to raise even more funds to bring the next stage of our plan to life. The global alumni community, PTA and the school board will also raise funds locally. The funds raised will be put together towards this renovation.

Why you should help

SLGS OBA seeks to bridge the gap between the pupils of SLGS and the world of science. We aim to
create an environment that will make science fun and interactive to develop tomorrow’s scientists,
doctors, nurses and engineers all of whom are needed by the country.
Every little penny counts and yours will go a long way towards achieving our goal. You can support us by
either providing expertise or financial support. With your support, you will be undoing a long period of
underfunding the School has faced due to the civil war. With your contribution you will be supporting a
child who has the potential to become a great scientist and innovator in future. If you want to know more,

donation in person.
