New Labu Tale classroom

The new building consists of two classrooms and a store room built at Labu Tale Primary School as part Bank South Pacific’s Lae commercial branch community project.

BSP Lae commercial branch manager, Robinson Panako, says BSP community projects are undertaken nationwide by each of their branches, strategic business units and subsidiary branches as a way for its staff to contribute meaningfully back to the community.

“While we stand as a corporate organisation, each of our staff is a part of a community,” said Panako.
