STUDENTS of Tamavua Primary School have become the latest beneficiaries of the one laptop per child (OLPC) program.
The school has 40 laptops, which are specifically designed and programmed for primary school-level students.
Headteacher Surend Mudaliar said the school and kindergarten had a combined roll of 1012 students.
"This is something new to them. They've started doing the activities on the laptop, which is like a new teacher to them," Mr Mudaliar said.
"I think it's very beneficial to the students and by the time they leave primary school, they'll be very good with computers."
He said computer literacy was an essential skill in today's world.
Education Minister Filipe Bole visited the school and said about 15 primary schools around the country were equipped through the project.
The OLPC project is supported by the One Laptop per Child Association and OLPC foundation in the US, which aims to distribute affordable educational devices for use in the developing world.
The project in Fiji is supported by the Education Ministry.
