The installation of solar lights for classrooms, staff rooms and the school grounds will light up the school that caters for about 800 students, from Elementary to Grade 8.
The project was delivered at a cost of K25, 000 and the Installation included 8 x 120w 12V solar panels and 10 Lights with solar LED bulbs, switches and distribution lines and a solar generator as the power saving source.
BSP Finance country Manager, Brett Tayler thanked the school for welcoming the project and urged the community to look after the facility.
“We are committing ourselves to equipping local schools with the tools they need for better education. We believe that providing Solar lights to schools will help improve literacy rates as well as an increase number of student intake into Tertiary Education,” he said.
“BSP Finance together with the BSP Group delivers community projects in all provinces through its BSP Branches and Strategic Business Unit, even in the Pacific Island countries where we operate,” Mr Tayler added.
Head Master of Iobuna Kouba Primary School Mr Buka said “Though we are located along the power grid, we experience a lot of power disruption. But with this new lights installed in our staff room we are confident that it will enable our teachers to work after hours and use equipment’s like laptops and printers to prepare lessons for our children.”
