STUDENTS of Pari Elementary School in Port Moresby are celebrating the opening of a new Library Learning Centre funded by Steamships Ltd.
It was opened this week by Motu Koita Assembly chairman Dadi Toka and Buk bilong Pikinini (BbP) executive officer Leanne Resson.
Anne-Sophie Hermann, the BbP founder and chairperson thanked their platinum foundational sponsor Steamships Ltd and the Motu Koita Assembly.
“(Because of them), we are able to have an impact on the lives of thousands of children in our programmes, ensuring that they are given the opportunity to achieve literacy and be able to contribute to the communities in which they live,” she said.
BbP executive officer Leanne Resson said hundreds of children at Pari Elementary would benefit from the early childhood development programme, “giving them the best educational foundation skills”.
Rupert Bray, Steamships Ltd chief operating officer said the children “are our future” and the literacy programmes put in place by Buk bilong Pikinini provided them with a platform to launch their learning journey.
“Steamships is proud to be a long-term supporter of this aspect of nation building,” he said.
