Colorful prefab huts for school

.

Last week these prefabs were trucked into Meitar through streets that were blocked off to traffic.
Slowly slowly a crane set them down in their designated places.
About seven in all. 


The school yard is a mess, meanwhile.
Let's hope the builders get everything in order before the first day of school, September1.


Meitarim is the town of Meitar's middle school.
I guess they need more space and the colorful huts are the (temporary?) solution.

See more about this school in these three posts.

Dear reader friends, sorry I have been away for so long. My laptop was not working for a week. Now it is fixed and I will get back into blogging.

Very colourful. Similar ones are sometimes used here at schools, but they are generally drab.

Sandi said...

So nice! Love the delightful colors.

In the post WW2 baby boom of 1946-1950, every returned serviceman wanted to start a family quickly. By 1952, state schools were full to the rafters with new students... they required extra classrooms quickly! I spent the early 1950s in portable huts like yours, but ours had no colour and no air conditioning :(

They are nice and colorful, but surely only a temporary solution.

I love the happy colors of the huts. School is getting ready to start here in a week. Summer flew by fast.

At least one Pasadena school has portable buildings like these, only not as colorful. They painted the doors to perk them up.

Hels, you remind me of the quonset huts on the campus of Northern Illinois University when I was a kid in DeKalb in the early 1960's. I believe they were campus housing for married students. They were gone by the time I was a teenager.

What a brilliant solution! We call those temporary classrooms 'modulars' here in the States and they are always a dull metallic color that looks more like a holding cell than a place to learn. Wish we had the colors you do. (On a side note: I am so excited!!! We've booked a cruise this fall that will take us back to Israel for two days at Ashdod and one day at Haifa. I am so excited to have another look at this amazing country of yours!!)

Hels and Petrea, thanks for the additional info from Australia and America. I don't remember temporary classrooms in Chicago during the baby boom but around 1954-5 my homeroom class had 50 pupils. They had to add a desk to the room's 49 stationary ones.

Jackie, thanks for the vocabulary. That's great that you will have (a little) more time to see Israel. Get in touch, eh?

Colourful they were! The children would not have appreciated these in monochrome ;-)

I love the bright colors, so cheery and welcoming for the children!

I am in favor of colorful solutions! A touch of Bermuda in Israel!

It seems that schools all over have to be creative when expanding the classroom situations. These are so fun and colorful.

They look a very colourful and inviting asset to the school.

Same here in Canada...the modular classroom prefabs aren't such wonderful colours. What fun for the students, especially the little ones.

Happy colours.
Looks nice.
My school was dull compared to this.

I hope they have air conditioning.
