The donation of 79 new desks and 35 chairs saw children of Nadele Public School, Nadi begin the first day of the 2020 academic school year on a positive note.

Company director, Doreen Yee said the desks and chairs were donated by her church community members in Australia.

“It was given to me and it became the company initiatives to the school. We had to identify a school that was all in need and some of our staff members found out about this school which was in need of new desks,” she said.

“The entire desks they were using were old ones.”

The school accommodates about 108 students and is situated in the interior of Sabeto outside of Nadi.

Mrs Yee said their donation to schools was an ongoing project they performed each year.

Nadele Public was the third school assisted and all the Yee’s company department representatives were present to identify needs of in the school premises.

“They are here to have a look and the first thing we noticed there was no sign board. So our priority is to put one up,” Mrs Yee said.

“We thought it optimum that the kids will have more appreciation receiving something on the first day of school. The children are all excited.

“We saw that on children’s faces today.”

Head teacher, Meli Cabebula, regarded the donation as a blessings from heaven and acknowledged the company for its generosity.
