Students at Samata-Uta Primary School in Savai’i were the happy recipients of a generous donation from the Australian Direct Aid Programme (A.D.A.P) last week.
The donation included 140 desks and chairs purchased from B.S.L. and S.S.A.B. that are valued up to $29,250.00.
During the presentation, the principal Letoa Setu Reupena expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the Australian Direct Aid Programme for the furniture.
“Thank you for your very kind donation, which we received today” Letoa said.
“Your generosity will make an immediate difference in the lives of our children here at Samata.
“To be honest, your generous donation has made things a little easier for our children today and in the future.
Letoa said that students will greatly benefit from the donation.
“Quality school furniture will improve the lives of our children as they learn in school.
“From everyone here at Samata, fa’afetai tele lava!”
