Incidentally, why do they attend school in prefab trailers?
Thanks Karin. In Australia, public schools often get temporary buildings put in when the population of the neighbourhood they are in rises and they need to accomodate more students. And because money is always an issue in public schools, those temporary buildings can often end up staying around a long time. So basically, it’s a public school with not a lot of money.
The primary school I went to for grades 5 and 6 was built entirely out of ‘portable’ classrooms. Two rows of portables joined together with a raised, covered hallway between the rows.
We also had a couple of loose portables that were used for specialist classes. The only permanent building was the art room, which was a a cottage that I think used to be a residence.
I don’t think it took the demolition guys a lot of effort to tear the place down.
A greenhouse in summer, and meatlocker in winter.
I live in the US, but we had several of those as permanent classrooms in my elementary school. I remember in the colder seasons things would crawl under them and die, then when spring rolled around we had to put up with the stench for weeks at a time until the custodians could get at them…
