STAFF and students of the St John School for the Blind in Port Moresby will enjoy learning in the comfort of their renovated classroom – thanks to Bank South Pacific.
School director Ruth Sangkol said the classroom, which included the main office, was built in 1992 and had not received any renovation or maintenance since.
“We were humbled to learn that the St John Blind School was considered one of the community projects by Bank South Pacific,” Sangkol said yesterday.
The Boroko Banking Centre branch renovated the classroom, the main office and replaced the roofing gutter, provided window fly wires, security wires, new curtains and floor mat.
It took more than four weeks to complete the project.
BSP also donated two computers, three tables and chairs, cabinets and a small fridge.
The outside of the building was also beautified with flower beds, gravel and a new signage.
“The school’s other great need is to have a vehicle – a 15-seater bus to help people who are blind and visually impaired in our communities.”
