BSP assist school become digitally inclusive

Wednesday, March 20, 2024

Students of La Salle Technical Secondary School in NCD are now equipped to be digitally inclusive, thanks to BSP Corporate team who recently came to the school’s assistance.

Students used refurbished computers that were donated some 10 years ago in a computer laboratory that needed a facelift and had been seeking assistance for the last three years.

BSP through its annual Community Project Initiatives had its Corporate Banking team refurbish the school’s computer lab counter tops and going a step further to assist the school purchase (6) new Computer sets equipped with UPS and basic software including Microsoft office suite and Anti-virus.

BSP Corporate GM Peter Beswick, his team and their families spent two weekends to assist with the lab renovation works prior to the project handover on Friday 8th March, 2024.

“While we stand as a corporate organisation, each of our staff is a part of a community that is why these community projects are conducted across all our branches in PNG, including the pacific markets where we operate in,” he told staff and students of the school that offers TVET classes.

Principal of La Salle Technical Secondary School, Br Antony Pancras said the school offers TVET courses - one of which is IT and this project will have a positive impact on the IT students. “They now have the advantage of using the new PCs with updated software, compared to the refurbished ones they were using were very slow.”

In expressing his gratitude on behalf of his staff and students said that this was not the first time BSP has supported the Lasallian Family. While serving as the Principal for De La Salle Secondary School at Bomana two years ago, BSP also delivered the e-library which benefitted the students and the school greatly.

“BSP’s support is greatly appreciated by the school community and the Lasallian family in PNG as a whole, as BSP is not only assisting just students, but shaping PNG’s future leaders,” Br Anthony added.
