Education

BOARDING students at Kwikila Secondary School in Central will now have access to better lights after the completion of Bank South Pacific’s solar lighting community project.
The deputy principal of the school, Tou Ogwasi, on behalf of the school and the students thanked BSP for its support.
“The solar lighting equipment contributed positively to the school in saving costs for the fuel for the generator,” he said.
“But more importantly, students now have a reliable source of light in the evening to do their study.”
The project, which took four weeks to complete, saw the installation of 15 solar light poles for the school grounds and indoor lights for the staff administration office and students’ dormitories.
Ogwasi said he was delighted to “see the bright lights and students studying under solar-powered lights. I smiled to myself. Thank you, BSP”.
The project was handed over to the school by BSP deputy general manager retail sales Kili Tambua on Tuesday. At the opening
were students, teachers and villagers.
Tambua thanked the students and staff for their support and urged the community to take care of the lights.
Kwikila is the 11th recipient of BSP’s 2018 community project, themed ‘Solar lights in high schools’.
The BSP community projects were undertaken by each branch in PNG and the Pacific, as a
way to contribute to the community.
This project was delivered by, BSP’s finance and planning, retail Bank and the BSP First team at a total costs of K75,000.
