Firm donates computers, balls to special education centre


MOROBE Special Education Centre at Eriku in Lae has received a computer and four soccer balls from Fincorp.
Lae branch manager Sibona Avei presented a personal computer, a 19-inch screen, keyboard, mouse and soccer balls to school coordinator George Lalaoia on Tuesday.
Avei said the computer would help teachers prepare their lessons. “In future I might propose something big to help this institution,” he said.
“It’s a great pleasure that I donated something to this centre on behalf of FinCorp.”
Lalaoia thanked Fincorp for supporting Morobe Special Education with the donation of the desktop computer.
“Thank you for supporting us to meet the education needs of our children,” he said. “It’s not just about making money for the people.
“You have a social obligation and responsibility to assist communities.
“Thank you very much for supporting a group of people like this in meeting some of their needs.”
Lalaoia said the centre catered for classes of hearing-impaired, multiple intellectual disabilities, Down Syndrome and vision-impaired students,
He said the centre was for early learning and after that students were put into mainstream schools.
“Currently we have 21 hearing-impaired students at Markham Road Primary School and other primary schools that cater for children’s special needs,” Lalaoia said.
