PRESS RELEASE ? ? ? ? ?

Two schools will get a better start to the school year, thanks to refurbished PCs from Westpac.

Yawe District School in Kadavu and Bau Primary School on the chiefly island of Bau received two and five PCs respectively.

Under the Bank?s community assistance program, refurbished PCs from the branch network are donated to communities who wish to use them.

Mr Tuimasi Tubananitu of Yawe who received the PCs for Yawe District School was overjoyed with the donation. Mr Tubananitu was in Suva to drop off his two children who had graduated from Yawe District School and were this year attending high school in Suva.

?I am very grateful for these PCs, our 93 students and teachers will make very good use of them?, said Mr Tubananitu.

?I am on my way back to Yawe this evening by boat and checked with Westpac for PCs, to our good fortune, they were able to assist today and I am taking them back on the boat with me?, added Mr Tubananitu.

Westpac?s Head of Retail, sales and Service, Mr Nirosh Weerasinghe, said, ?We are delighted that the schools are keen to use the PCs and are happy to assist.?
