[Others.008] After 79 years of waiting....

Actually this has not much to do with the house we are building, but as it's an exciting news for everyone in the community around our area, I would like to share it with everyone.

As reported by "Northern District Times" "YES, you will have your hall", and the Epping West Primary School newsletter "Contact", after 79 years of waiting, the school finally have the funding to build a school hall.

Imagine that, 79 years! There have been fund raising events every year, but the money raised can never catch up with the increasing construction cost.

Just wonder how many other public schools are in a similar situation, waiting for years to get funding for setting up essential infrastructure. And ironically, how many other private schools owning more than one halls and are still receiving government funding...
