ST Mary’s Catholic Primary School in Lae has received a furnished library building, complete with e-library installation and two new computers.
The facility handed over by Bank South Pacific’s Lae toptown branch last week has been considered an early Christmas gift for the school.
Head teacher Nicholas Lekung said the original school library had seen any improvements for almost 25 years.
He said the e-library provided all the school resource books in digital format which the students and teachers can use to access information.
“The e-library will not only be accessed by the library’s computers but also through any smartphone, as long as they are within the vicinity of the school premises,” he said.
“It will not only benefit the students but also the teachers because they can use it to plan lessons.”
Lekung said teachers living in the school area can access the e-library from the comfort of their homes.
Catholic education secretary Fr John Nake said improving school facilities was a way forward for them.
“Under the government’s plan to include grade nines in all primary schools in Morobe by 2025, this is already a step forward for us as we work towards this plan,” Nake said.
This project was carried out by the Bank South Pacific Lae toptown branch under its annual community project.
BSP area manager for Momase Barry Namong said all BSP branches in PNG and offshore worked within a specific K30,000 budget to establish a project.
The St Mary’s Catholic Primary School e-library installation is the second of its type after BSP did a similar project at Mutzing Primary School last year.
