Earlier this year, Junior School families donated books and school supplies to be sent to two schools on Manus Island. The boxes of supplies were presented to Special Purpose Receiver Towns and Lance Corporal MacDonald from the 25th Squadron, by the school Defence Club students.
As part of ‘Exercise Puk Puk’, the Australian Army sent the 3rd Combat Engineer Regiment to Lobrum Primary School, and Papitalai Secondary School to undertake much-needed renovations and deliver the donated school supplies.
‘Exercise Puk Puk’ is an annual engineering exercise involving military personnel from Papua New Guinea, Australia, the UK, and other partner nations.
The video above was recently sent to The Cathedral School, to thank the students and families for supporting young students on Manus.
