The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints has extended its helping hand to Avele College.
Yesterday, 200 desks, chairs and reading books were presented to the school.
The church hopes the equipment will contribute to the development of future leaders at the College.
“It is actually a co-operation between the Charitable Trust in NZ, Elders charity and the Ministry of Education because we place the furniture where the Ministry of Education advises us to place,”said Elder Vellinga.
“We hope that you will enjoy and appreciate these wonderful gifts.”
Principal Lesaisaea Reupena Matafeo accepted the donation and thanked the church.
“The weather man this morning saidthat there will be too much rain this weekend but forAvele,this is a shower of blessings for us,” Lesaisaea said.
“It’s a shower of blessings because we believe that through this donation, it is a way for us to move forward,especially the help of educational resources.
“On behalf of Avele College, the staff, A.C.O.P.A. and the parents,we want to say thank you very much for your generosity.
“This is a big help to promote what Avele is trying to do in terms of offering a holistic education system for all, not just academic but vocational subjects as well, so will be able to meet the needs of Samoa in the future.”
