At daybreak, the 1st Truss is lifted into position on classroom block1

There was a mixture of relief and celebration as the brickwork was completed on Block 1 of the extension to Missionvale Primary school early this Fri morning, and the 1st roof truss was put in place. The pressure is really on the volunteers from Group 1 now to complete the brickwork on Block 2 by Saturday evening, in time for the arrival of the Group 2 who will touch down in Missionvale on Sunday, ready to commence roofing the classroom extensions.
