THE faces of students lit up in Bucalevu Secondary School on Taveuni yesterday as they were given a chance to operate the schools first batch of Apple tablets.

Excited Year 13 student Fiona Cabealawa of Navakawau said she just could not wait to learn more of the cool gadget.

"We are talking about the latest gadgets that we see mostly in movies and this is so cool," she said.

"I have been learning about the learning applications that are loaded in the tablets and I can imagine the door of possibilities that will now open to examinations students like me this year."

Rotary New Zealand Digital Learning Centre project co-ordinator Kelsi Cox said the tablets were loaded with the latest software that were still being introduced to the market.
