PDS- third phase classroom - US$25,000.00 The long term vision of PDS is to provide a safe and an atmosphere conducive to learning by building new classrooms.
EATING AREA Project - US$3000 (BZ$6000) FLOOR ONLY
At PDS we are always finding new ways to make our students feel welcomed, safe and at home. As a school we have designated an eating area for students who don't go home during lunch time and buy food at school (patchakan and San Pedro kids). Lately we have experienced more rain than usual and the eating area gets flooded making it difficult for students to eat. As a school our project is to elevate the eating area floor to solve this issue.
By supporting this project you'll allow students and parents to have a dry, comfortable and clean area to eat. In addition to a dry and comfortable area it will facilitate school gatherings as assembly, short parent conferences and school activities planned throughout the school year.

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY CENTRE (project estimates will be posted soon)
The traditional classroom is merging with the online world, and students need to know how to function in this blended learning environment. As a school we want to better equip our students as they advance in their educational studies. To start, we will be opening our upper division Moodle platform this January 2024. This will allow students to work from school and work online. If any student is absent or ill, they won't lose that days’ work. We currently have 2 projectors, which are shared amongst teachers. Our goal is to equip each classroom with a computer, projector, speaker, and webcam to live stream our session (students who can’t attend in-person classes will be able to watch the session live).
Our major project is a science and technology centre. This is to provide students with a department where they can learn, programing robotics, prepare and conduct research, and also to provide all students with the opportunity to complete work/assignments given. We have 5 raspberry pi computers that are ready to be used but we need the appropriate space to keep the devices. We have the facility but it needs remodelling, which include, replacing of tiles, rewiring the electrical system, new furniture and installing an 18k BTU ac unit.
At PDS we want to create a more engaged environment, incorporate different learning styles and connect with students and parents.
By supporting this project, you will be providing 100 students a better quality of education and you’ll allow students to discover the role of technology in God's story.
