Profit from coffin sales

THE Labasa School for Special Education has earned about $8000 from selling coffins over the past two years.

School headteacher Mukesh Chand said the profit made was through the sale of coffins made at the workshop by students.

“However, our students were at the same time engaged in the building of the new workshop that was officially opened today (yesterday),” he said.

“The coffins were made by joinery students during practical classes in school but were not intended to be sold.

“However, we started selling after people learned that we were producing coffins and since 2012, the school had been involved in the production of coffins.”

Mr Chand said the opening of the new workshop would ensure mass production of coffins and “more profit is expected to be generated through this”.
