Students at Apia Primary School have a lot to be thankful for.
On Monday, they received a donation from the Chinese Embassy.
It was $10,000 worth of instruments presented to the Chairman of the School Board, Tuiletufuga Siaosi Tuiletufuga and the Principal of the School Leiataua Lino Tagiilima, by Ambassador Wang Xuefeng.
“Our people have a long history of friendship,” said Mr. Wang.
“In the past several years we sent Chinese teachers to teach Chinese language in your school so this morning I am happy to hear that you can sing the Chinese song very well.”
Among the instruments donated were guitars, a drum kit, amplifiers and microphones.
“I hope these music instruments will bring you all beautiful music and a happy life.”
Tuiletufuga, who is a well known musician, acknowledged the support of the Chinese Embassy.
He said this is perfect Christmas present for the village of Apia.
