TEACHERS and students of Saint Augustine Primary school are appealing to kind Samaritans for contributions of computer parts that were stolen from the school last week.
School head Setefano Curuki said the school computer lab was broken into with important computer parts ripped off from the computers.
Mr Curuki said the students were looking forward to becoming part of a 30-primary school selection by the Ministry of Education to host computer classes in their school.
"We were donated 10 computers by CJ Patel group of companies earlier in the year and we had just completed the new lab to house the computers," Mr Curuki said.
"Children were so excited to be part of the new computer classes and they had been looking forward to attending these classes after the completion of the lab.
"Most of our students are children of farmers whose parents work in the Wailevu cane belt areas who are not really well off and we have always relied on contributions and other community initiatives."
Mr Curuki said that he failed to understand why people could be so cold-hearted to rob innocent children of their chance to proper education.
Mr Curuki said that they found out about the robbery after trying to operate one of the computers which had failed to turn on.
"Upon investigation, we then found out that the Central Processing Unit (CPU) had been tampered and missing from it were the Digital Video Disk (DVD) driver, the random access memories (RAM) and the hard drives of our CPUs while the robber had left behind the rest of the computer," he said.
"We appeal to members of the public to assist us in any way possible in ensuring that our students have access to computer education."
Police in Labasa have confirmed receiving the report last Tuesday.
