THE Rewa Secondary School received a cash boost from an international freight company on Friday.

Gibson Freight presented $4255 to help cater for the school's rugby and netball teams' travel expenses in the Eastern Zone competition.

Rewa Secondary is fielding an under-17 rugby team and U17 and U19 netball teams in the competition.

School principal Eliasere Ratunaulu said they faced difficulties in paying for their travel expenses to the competitions.

He said the sponsorship would motivate the players to perform better on the field.

Ratunaulu said the company had been helping the school since 2010 and provided jerseys for the rugby and netball teams.

"Last week, our team defeated QVS which is one of the top teams in the competition by 22-15. This sponsorship will help us get good results in the future. We thank Gibson Freight for their support."

Gibson Freight (Fiji) manager Kamal Reddy said they were pleased to support remote schools to help their students get exposure at the national level.

He said the company also presented a set of jerseys to Yasawa High School lately.

"The company owner Bill Gibson believes in charity and this is part of his vision. We want to help rural schools so their students are not deprived of top level competitions," Reddy said.

"We also assist the Ministry of Health by transporting the medical equipment free of any freight charges."
