Labasa College is the first school to donate in cash and kind at the FijiFirst party office in Labasa.

This was after the teachers, staff and students collected $816.35 cash and ten boxes of clothes and kitchen utensils which was delivered to the party office in Labasa yesterday.

Labasa College principal Kamlesh Prasad said they had conducted a two-week Tropical Cyclone Winston appeal drive in the school.

“In our school we have two boarding students, Isimeli Mavi from Nasavu Village and Alisi Vua from Kubulau in Bua, whose families lost everything in the cyclone,” Mr Prasad said.

“So what we did from the $816.35 collected, we allocated $100 each for these students to cater for their educational needs.

“We did this to lift the burden from their parents so they don’t have to worry about their children and have ample time to rebuild their homes.

“We gave the donation to FijiFirst because we believe they will deliver it to the right people who are in desperate need of assistance,” he said.

FijiFirst party northern co-ordinator Anil Prasad thanked the school and confirmed that this was the first northern school to deliver donation to their office.

“Everyday donations pour in from families and business organisation and I want to thank everyone for their support in rebuilding lives of those who have lost something in the cyclone.”

The school has a roll of 578 students with 40 teachers.
