Students want a telecentre

STUDENTS of Bua Central College have made a plea to the Prime Minister's Office for the construction of a telecentre in the school.

During a talanoa session with Rear Admiral Voreqe Bainimarama in Nabouwalu, Bua, last Friday, Year 11 (Form 5) student Latu Tokailolopahogo explained they were at a disadvantage when it came to internet access.

"Most of the students need to do research for assignments so we have to travel to an internet shop in Nabouwalu," she said.

"Nabouwalu is far away from our school and travelling there means more expenses for us."

She said the students knew about other telecentres opening in other schools on Viti Levu.

"If we had a telecentre like other schools which have them, we would not have to travel all the way to Nabouwalu."

Hearing the plea from the students, Rear Admiral Bainimarama said his office would look into the request.

"Au sa vakadonuya na nomu kerekere, keitou na qai raica me dua na nomudou telecentre. (I have agreed to your request and we will see to it that a telecentre be built for your school," he said during the talanoa session.

So far, government has opened more than 20 telecentres across Viti Levu, Vanua Levu, Ovalau and Kadavu.
