BSP solar lights give school good backup


Bank South Pacific in Lae has handed over a K30,000 solar lighting project to Nawai Lutheran High School in Nawaeb.
The solar lights are installed at the library, the main administration building, the mess hall, ablution blocks and girls’ dormitory.
BSP project coordinator Lionel Kamiak said the bank valued the importance of delivering
services to the schools and communities which needed them. They chose the school because it has not had a good source of electricity since its establishment in 2004.
Solar power will kick in when the school’s generator fails.
Lae Market BSP branch manager Josephine Komoru said the bank’s community project initiative started in 2009.
“For this year, BSP wants to help with putting up lights for remote schools,” she said.
Headmaster Gobuta Kosieng said the solar lights would help the school which had been having problems with its old power generator.
Buang High School in Bulolo has also had solar lights provided.
BSP staff in Bulolo delivered and installed solar lights for the remote high school as a community project.
