The students and teachers of Holy Rosary Primary School, at 6 Mile, NCD kicked off their 2024 academic year on a very high note on Monday 29th January, which saw the students commencing their classes with access to a refurbished ablution block, thanks to BSP Life PNG Limited.
Through BSP’s Community Project, BSP Life PNG – the life insurance arm of the business, refurbished the school’s ablution block while the students were away on 2023 end of year break.
Prior to this, all students were accessing the girls’ ablution block which highlights the urgent need for improvement.
BSP Life PNG Country Manager, Nilson Singh and his BSP Life PNG team handed back the completed project to the school as they commence their 2024 classes.
“It is with immense gratitude and pride that I stand before you today because at BSP Life, we recognize the transformative power of education, we believe that every child deserves access to a safe learning environment, and it is our responsibility as corporate citizens to support initiatives that promote this cause,” Mr Singh said.
“This (BSP 2023 Community) project is not only about meeting a critical need but also reflects BSP’s core values.”
“Through our partnership with Holy Rosary Primary School, we demonstrate our unwavering commitment to making a positive difference in the lives of those we serve,” he added.
BSP Community Projects is undertaken annually nationwide by our Branches, Strategic Business Units (SBUs), and Subsidiary Branches, and are a testament to BSP’ commitment to giving back to the community.
“Focused on Education, Health, Sports, Environment, and other community initiatives, these projects embody our values of compassion, integrity, and community engagement.”
The teachers and students at Holy Rosary Primary School were thankful to BSP Life for the assistance.
Headmistress Ms Gethrude Bade in her appreciation speech to BSP stated that the ablution block was one of their critical needs.
Ms Bade highlighted that the school was about to bring to the attention of the NCD Education board, the state of their facility but BSP came at a proper time to their assistance.
“It’s a huge relief for the school because male students can now have access to their own toilets instead of using the girl’s toilets and Teachers will also have access to their own toilets.”
“This facility will go a long way for our 1,700 plus students,” said Ms Bade.
