BSP Life PNG Country Manager Nilson Singh when handing over the complete project said, “Education is one of the most important investments a country can make in its future and part of that starts here in our schools, in the classrooms and in libraries. School libraries provide opportunities for students to think, create, share & grow. They can be a hub of learning, bridging the digital divide and making a difference in the lives of students. Our students are the leaders of tomorrow and it is important they get the best education possible.”
“When access to education and learning grows, the ripple effects on communities and countries is remarkable. While we stand as a corporate organisation, each of our staff is a part of a community. I hope that through our contribution today to Koiari Park Adventist Secondary School, it will empower learners, inspire and make meaningful change for current students and future generations as well,” added Singh.
Students and teachers can also connect to the e-library through Wi-Fi access, without requiring internet access. With our contribution to improving learning facilities for the students, we believe the school will continue to achieve outstanding results academically.
Koiari Park Adventist Secondary School Principal Sailas Wagi emotionally thanked BSP for choosing their school as they have longed to have such a facility for a long time.
“I could hug you all right now and thank you for the tremendous donation that seemed small but worthy for the school especially teachers and students in boosting their learning, capacity” wept Mr Wagi.
