Tenaru, Solomon Islands—The RYS Solomon Islands project was held from June 13th through 19th at St. Joseph’s Secondary College in Tenaru, which is a prominent Catholic school in the area.

The work project consisted of two main activities:

The first area of work was removing dilapidated wood frames and rebuilding them with new screens to keep insects out. In the process of repairing the screens, the dorms were swept and tidied for the coming school year.

The second part of the project was related to the upkeep of the grounds. Due to the large size of the school and the prolific growth rate of the plants, certain parts of the school had become abandoned where the grass had become overgrown. Over a number of years the same areas had become a dumping place for trash of all kinds, including broken bricks, glass, timber and metal. Not only were the lawn areas cut and cleared of trash, but other school properties that had fallen out of use were also restored. This increased the areas available for student use.

The Ministry of National Unity, Peace and Reconciliation supported this project because of the work RYS is doing to bring youth together from several island nations.
