FM Campbell Memorial Community High School in Kirakira, Makira Ulawa province has praised South Pacific Oil (SPO) for its donation on Monday.
SPO donated 30 singlets, one drum petrol and two carton of A4 papers.
School principal, Edward Poroaki said, the shirts will be used by its athletic team for the upcoming Inter-Kakamora schools carnival in April.
Mr Poroaki said the drum petrol will reduce their costs of purchasing fuel to carry out their activities.
He said the two cartoon A4 papers will assist the school in its administration work.
SPO Sales and Marketing manager, William Watepuru said SPO is 100% owned by National Provident Fund where most teachers are direct members of it.
As such he reiterated that profits made by SPO will be paid to NPF contributions at the end of financial year.
Furthermore, Watepuru said SPO was happy to help Campbell Memorial CHS because three of their senior employees were former students of this school.
One of them is Assistant General Manager Operations, Henry Kuper who was also part of the SPO team.
Kuper encouraged the students to work hard so they can achieve good jobs in future.
He said nothing was impossible if work hard and commit your time in studies.
“Today life is very hard because of no jobs and alot of school drop-outs.
“I encourage you to aim high so you get good job like I do,” he added.
Campbell school consists of three strands namely secondary, primary and Early Childhood Centre.
It started around 1967 when the school was used by the British Government to serve all the students in Eastern District including Makira Ulawa and Temotu province.
