Through the kind generosity and support of our three New Zealand schools, we have been able to make a substantial donation of resources to Saint Paul VI College in Samoa. As our first 'Lasallian' school in Samoa, we were extremely pleased to work alongside the Principal, Sister Tina Kalepo (SOLN), to undertake a crucial needs analysis of the school and to prioritise useful materials and much sort after resources. We are overjoyed to report that 174 boxes on 8 pallets were shipped free of charge to Saint Paul VI by Matson's Freight Forwarders this month and they are due in Apia on the 22nd September.
We kindly acknowledge the company owner, Sir Michael Jones (ex-All Black), for his substantial support of this endeavour and for assisting with these education needs in Samoa. Included in our shipment were computers, data projectors, sewing machines, textbook support for all subjects, library books, sporting equipment and stationery. It is our prayer that these materials make a significant positive impact on both the staff and students at Saint Paul VI College.
Live Jesus in our hearts!
