This project will harvest rain from the new Assembly Hall Roof for storage in water tanks at ground level and also on elevated structures. This project will allow for rain harvesting significant quantities of water for non-consumptive uses including bathroom and toilet facilities. The project will include the use of solar powered pump for pumping water from ground level tank to overhead tanks that feeds the toilets and bathrooms by gravity
Twining of POW school with a US Based school
A mutual understanding to create a Twinning Relationship between an International Baccalaureate School in Augusta, Georgia and the Prince of Wales School in Kingtom, Freetown, Sierra Leone has been agreed to. This program will allow for exchange of curricula virtually between the schools and for future exchange visits between students and teachers of both schools. This project is in the initial phases of development and is to be completed shortly.
Science Lab Roof
This project will replace the existing Science Block Roof with a new roof. The current roof is leaking which is causing structural failures on the concrete and Steel reinforcement below the roof. This project has to be completed before the project to resupply the laboratories with new equipment
Fundraising and Grants
A Fundraising and Grants Committee is developing a project that will research into grants, identifying or hiring grant writers, and planning activities such as challenge campaigns, house parties for fundraising, door to door solicitations, sports tournaments etc.
Solar Battery Replacement African Virtual School
This project will include the replacement of ten (10) solar batteries and the purchase of new Laptop Computers for the Computer Laboratory. In addition to these items, a Software Program will be implemented for use by students to practice for the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) and West African Senior School Certification Examination (WASSCE). This Software developed by a Princewalean in the UK is called the African Virtual School. Software, hardware including Servers will be procured and installed at the POW Computer Laboratory as part of the services that will be included in the scope of work for this project
Solar Training for Students
We have identified a Technical Institute Renewable Energy Centre in Kissy for training students in renewable energy including Solar, Wind, Biomass, and Hydro power technologies. With the current push for developing capacity for renewable energy in Sierra Leone, this project will offer students graduating from SSS who are not interested in going to college to train in renewable energy technologies. These students will represent “blue collar” workers for supporting Sierra Leone’s growing economy. The proposal will initially target funding up to ten (10) students per year and based on its success and availability of funding, the numbers may be increased in future years. This project will also capitalize on the existing Solar Power System that has been operating at the POW School for the last nine (9) years.
