Computer gifts

Dawn Gibson

IN A bid to get more young Fijians online on a daily basis, former students of St Agnes Primary School handed over seven computers to the school on Tuesday earlier this week.

The former students are all from the Korovulavula family who went through the school many years ago.

School head teacher Simione Walolo said it was a welcome surprise because it was the first time the school had ever received gifts of this nature.

"We will station these ones in the IT rooms here," Mr Walolo said.

"We will connect the computers to the internet and the children can then use them for their assignments."

He explained they were lucky enough to have 25 computers already in the school, as well as 40 laptops — all of which were being used by students and teachers.

The students are already taking part in computer classes, which the school provides once a week and the new computers are expected to make these weekly classes more efficient.

Mr Walolo said it was wonderful to see former students giving back to the school.
