School receives water tanks

The National,Tuesday June 14th, 2016

WATER problems at Mt Diamond Secondary School in Central are likely to ease with the installation of two 9000-litre storage tanks.
The Bank South Pacific (BSP), through its community project initiative, installed the tanks and the bank’s NCD area manager Standerd Wai said it was part of the company’s community projects
“We’re happy to give back to the community,” Wai said.
“Clean drinking water and hygiene are a must in schools and communities.”
Mt Diamond Secondary School principal Martin Sepe said they had water shortages because there were only two tanks for the school, the surrounding communities and Seventh -day Adventist Church.
“With the two additional tanks installed it will be sufficient to serve everyone,” he said.
“More importantly, students and staff will have their own water tank to use. We sincerely thank BSP for this initiative and contribution to the school.”
Other community projects BSP supports typically include; refurbishing hospital wards and clinics, renovating classrooms, libraries, bringing healthcare to communities, constructing new market buildings and bus stops and other.
Since the inception of BSP’s community projects 2009, BSP continues these projects nationwide.
