The children, Salesian Sisters, staff and parents of St. Joseph Primary school Leauva’a are an extremely grateful bunch.
Thanks to the Australian Aid through their Direct Aid Program (D.A.P), the school was able to purchase 300 Sebel Postura Plus chairs valued at $49,500.
Principal Sr. Lavalea Ielenimo said the help from the Australian Aid could not have come at a better time.
“After the opening of the new school building we needed new furniture,” she said in a statement.
“Australia came to our aid by the provision of 300 chairs for our school. The cost of these 300 good quality chairs was not cheap.
“We appreciate very much the assistance from the Australian Aid and there is no doubt that the quality chairs we received will be used in the next fifteen or more years to come.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Government of Australia and the Australian High Commission, D.A.P team for foreseeing the needs of the different communities in Samoa including St. Joseph Primary School Leauva’a.
The children of St. Joseph sit comfortably and enjoy their learning environment because of this help from the Australian Aid. Faafetai Faafetai tele lava!”
