Good start to year

TWO schools have received a good start to the school year, thanks to refurbished personal computers (PCs) from Westpac Banking Corporation.

Yawe District School in Kadavu and Bau Primary School on the chiefly island of Bau received two and five PCs respectively.

Under the bank's community assistance program, refurbished PCs from the branch network are given to communities that wish to use them.

Tuimasi Tubananitu of Yawe, who received the PCs for Yawe District School, was overjoyed with the gift.

He was in Suva to drop off his two children who had graduated from Yawe District School and are this year attending high school in Suva.

"I am very grateful for these PCs, our 93 students and teachers will make very good use of them," said Mr Tubananitu.

Westpac's head of retail, sales and service Nirosh Weerasinghe said: "We are delighted that the schools are keen to use the PCs and we are happy to assist."
