Villagers make use of telecentre

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, September 17, 2013

FOLLOWING the opening of the telecentres in five schools on Vanua Levu last week, members of the public have continued to flood the school premises to take advantage of the free internet services.

The government initiative set up at Seaqaqa Central College, Labasa Muslim College, Guru Nanak Khalsa College, Nadogo Secondary School and Savusavu Secondary School has resulted in people queuing up every afternoon from 4pm to 9pm to use the services.

Divisional education officer Northern Satya Shandil yesterday said the centres had so far benefitted internet users in the area. "The people are making good use of these centres and we really thank government for this initiative," Mr Shandil said.

"Students are using the internet for their school research work and the public are also using it for good reasons.

"We are also urging schools in remote areas to come on board and make use of this opportunity because this is very useful."

In places where there is no electricity, Mr Shandil said people could use solar systems to supply them with power.
