2013 February - School Grounds double in Size
In the middle of February the purchase of Lot 1, the strip of land adjacent to the school, was completed, doubling the area of the school grounds to 1,000 m². The fence was moved to its new position at the outer edge of the newly acquired land.

While the fence was moved, local elders arbitrated in a dispute between the previous owner of the bought land and the present owner of Lot 2, to settle the matter of the exact position of the border between them and to ensure the fence was placed correctly. The empty land beyond the elders is Lot 2.
