Naim contributes new computers, reading materials to SK St Phillip

KUCHING: Naim Cendera yesterday contributed two units of brand new computers and reading materials to SK St Phillip’s computer lab and resource centre as part of its community outreach programme.

The contributions were handed over at a ceremony held at the school.

Naim’s construction manager Clif Mengud said that as a responsible corporate citizen, Naim has always taken into consideration, the interests of the community in which it operates.

“At Naim, a strong awareness of our corporate social responsibility is ingrained into our business model. As we are a part of the community, we have a duty towards community preservation and development. Towards this end, we have a strong community outreach programme which seeks to provide assistance to the needy.”

Headmaster of SK St Phillip, Paul Raban said the contributions would greatly benefit the students and add value to their learning experience.

“Coincidentally, works for our new computer lab were completed a couple of weeks ago. Naim is the first corporate organisation to contribute towards the computer lab.

“Although we are not a big school, we try our best to assist our students in ways we can. With these computers, the students’ learning experience can be enhanced. We are very grateful to Naim for this.”

SK St Phillip Padawan has a total of 34 students and 12 staff comprising teaching and administrative staff.

Among those in attendance at the ceremony were Reverend Father Arundi Ganjoh, the School Board chairman Deacon Christopher Ajis Baw, chairman of St Phillip’s Parent-Teacher Association, Dominic Yon, Annah Rais village head and Father Tony Jilat George, the parish priest.
