Sod Turning Ceremony at Lequeracabu’u!

The Lequeracabu’u school project is off and running with the offical sod turning ceremony on Tuesday attended by the villagers, the builders, the Education Ministry, Jenny Coles (Kirsty’s right hand woman) and two of Kirsty and the Prime Minister Xanana Gusmao’s boys.   The construction contract was formally signed and work is scheduled to be completed in three months.  The kids loved the soccer balls which the Gusmao boys took for them.  More information to follow soon – but for today some great photos.
