Port Moresby, 16th March , 2017 | Disruption of classes due to water shortage will be a thing of the past for Boreboa Primary School in the nation’s capital, as they received a new water tank, an electric pump and had their ablution blocks renovated by Bank of South Pacific (BSP).
“Classes were suspended due to water disruptions, but with the new tank and water pump, we now have a reliable back up of clean water for students and staff. The renovated ablution blocks reinforces our schools aim to promote healthy living environment,” said Brian Kagayabi, Head Master of Boreboa Primary School.
This community project will have a positive impact on the community by ensuring that hundreds of students and families have clean access to water when the main water supply is cut off.
The project was undertaken by BSP Treasury staff that volunteered their time over the weekend and assisted in cleaning up the work site, cementing the base of the water tank and installation of the water tank. The team also repainted the ablution blocks and cleaned the area around the project site.
BSP’s Treasury Sales Manager, Kerowa Maladina, said, “The project is rewarding for the staff, as it we gave back to a community that needed assistance. The total cost of the project was K25,000 and is a part of BSP Community Initiative that is executed through all branches in PNG and the Pacific.”
“We thank the School Board, Management and Students for allowing us to work in your school. We believe that our contribution will leave lasting changes in the community,” added Mr Maladina.
This is the second community project handed over by BSP this week. Also on Wednesday, BSP handed over a refurbished library to Gordon Secondary School.
