STUDENTS of Labasa Primary School should expect a cleaner environment when they resume studies next week after a group of inmates offered to clean up the school premises yesterday.
The initiative was a partnership effort between the Labasa Corrections Centre and the Labasa Primary School Parents, Teachers and Friends Association (PTFA).
Centre supervisor northern Penisoni Tuapati said such activities were part of their community engagement for the second quarter this year.
"The association approached us early this year and we offered to clean up the premises in the school break so the children's studies were not disturbed," Mr Tuapati said.
"We have a target to meet with our social obligation and we aim to complete two more community projects depending on the request from the public this year.
"This is a voluntary activity and we're delighted to help the PTFA with our work so the students can continue their work in a composed environment come the second school term."
PTFA vice president Paulini Seru thanked the inmates and the centre management for their contribution.
