The 56 students of year 12 were accompanied by their teachers, Tovio Taefu, Priscilla Betham and the School Principal, Masa Faasau. “It is more like a school tradition, because this is our eighth year doing this now,” said Principal Fa’asau.

“It is part of our community outreach and we do two important visits a year. One to Loto Taumafai and one to Mapu-i-fagalele.”

The residents of the home were happy to welcome the students.

The help was deeply appreciated by the 49 elders and the staff of Mapu-i-fagalele.

“The things they give are the things we really need,” said Sister Maureen. “A lot of our people are sick in bed most of the time so they are really happy when people come to help and entertain them.”
