Books, stationery boost Nadi school
Paper Plus delegates delighted Nadi Primary School children in Fiji by donating much- needed books and stationery.
Many of the students were quite affected by the recent devastating floods.
Matamata Paper Plus donated goods to support the cause.
In association with Red Cross, Paper Plus has gone the extra mile for the children; a donation the Group’s chief executive Rob Smith said will make an invaluable difference.
“It was devastating to hear that many of the children at Nadi Primary School go without the necessary learning materials such as textbooks and stationery. Paper Plus saw an opportunity to make a difference to the education of these children and we grabbed it,” said Mr Smith.
Red Cross’ Nadi president Dr Yunus said they are thrilled to be working with Paper Plus to provide quality learning materials for the school; a donation he said, would go a very long way for the deserving children and teachers.
“Our aim at the Red Cross is to continually strive to save and improve the lives of the people in Fiji. Paper Plus’ contribution will most certainly help achieve this and we look forward to see- ing real benefits to the education of the children at Nadi Primary School,” said Dr Yunus.
The donation will include maths, reading, health and social studies textbooks as well as a variety of necessary stationery, including pencils, paints and paper for those classrooms that do not have adequate teaching supplies.
