BUKIT PADANG – The completion of the road work of the new St Francis Convent Secondary School here has been delayed by three weeks by the rainy weather.
This was conveyed to Archbishop John Wong, adviser to the school management board, at a technical briefing cum site inspection visit on 14 May 2018. Present were members of the building committee, technical and fundraising subcommittees, past and present principals, and Sister Cecilia Liew fsic, adviser to the school alumni association, and the consultants.
Sans bad weather, the contractor said he hoped to complete it before June 6. The members also discussed and decided on a few other related matters before the inspection of the site.
As of this site inspection, the two four-storey blocks – one consisting of 22 classrooms and living skills workshops, and the other of science laboratories, offices, staffroom, library, and special rooms – have been completed. The canteen is in the process of completion.
The groundwork for the RM12 million SFCSS building located behind St Francis Convent Primary School in Bukit Padang, Kota Kinabalu, was carefully laid.
The development plan was approved in June 2014 and the new building plans were approved in August 2014.
The building works contractor, CL Contractor Sdn Bhd began work on 7 September 2015 and the project is scheduled to be completed by 2018.
Future developments include a multipurpose hall, a sports field, and a kindergarten.
