Elizabeth College Refectory – three years on

The refectory build at Elizabeth College was a logistically difficult build to carry out. The brief was to add a new floor on to an existing two storey building dating from the 1500s with the build having to take place whilst the 570 pupils and staff went about their daily school lives. This meant all construction vehicles and workers had to be on site before the school opened each day and not leave until the school day had ended.

Ellen Jane Rihoy Block

The Ellen Jane Rihoy block is the girls' dormitory at Endana school in Laikipia, Kenya. This is the first girls' dormitory that the school has had. It has transformed educational opportunities for girls from pastoralist communities in Laikipia, providing for the first time an opportunity for over 100 girls to attend the secondary school. Construction was financed by the EJ Rihoy Trust and Guernsey Overseas Aid. The EJ Rihoy Trust also provides bursaries for bright but impoverished children to attend this secondary school in Laikipia. The school decided to name the block in honour of Ellen Jane Rihoy, a frequent visitor and long time supporter of the school.
