Info about the School Kitchen


The local Secondary School has been the victim of two fires in its lifetime, which resulted in many of the school buildings being destroyed. The school has succeeded in rebuilding much of the lost infrastructure; however, a proper kitchen has yet to be constructed. Currently, students’ meals are prepared in a small wooden shack which is not a proper environment for preparing food, as it is very susceptible to fire. In addition, the school uses a large amount of firewood for cooking—this produces a large amount of smoke which is unhealthy for the cooks, and also costs the school a lot of money. Finally, the lack of a proper kitchen means that the students’ lunch takes longer to be prepared than it should. The result is that normally, students have not finished eating until well into the period after lunch, which takes away from their classroom instruction time. Therefore, by constructing a modern kitchen, the school will have a safe, secure, and efficient location for preparing students’ food, and will also allow the school to introduce modern burners which will reduce energy consumption and pollution.
