Students and teachers of Ratu Ilaisa Memorial School in Sigatoka were all smiles yesterday after receiving gift packs from Australian-based company Fair Dinkum Sheds.

The company donated bags, books, USBs and jerseys for the students.

The company’s brand manager Carli Wilson said they had huge plans for the school and would continue to support them when they returned to Sydney.

“We had very fantastic and enthusiastic business owners who lent money for the school,” she said.

“It is really great coming out here and learning the tradition and cultures of the school students. They had requested for one computer but we have collected for more than one but a set of computers.”

Fair Dinkum Sheds is a leading distributor of residential garages and carports, barns, farm sheds, industrial and commercial buildings and is widely acknowledged as one of the largest networks of cold formed steel building distributors in Australia.

They hosted their conference with local companies at the Inter-Continental Fiji Golf Resort and Spa in Natadola where they had an auction.

“We managed to raise $24,000; we will work with the school and the community to make an appropriate donation in terms of technology improvements for the school.”

She said they would develop an ongoing development plan for the school.

“We had two businesses who donated AUD$500 each. This was done as they raised money to go for a fishing charter and many others of our customers decided to donate money as well. We will go back to the community at home, collect some more money and then we buy the right product they are looking for.”

Meanwhile, head teacher Apenisa Delai applauded the much-needed donation.
