The computer was donated by the Ministry of Communities following a request made by the school. Public Relations Officer of the ministry, Nicole Telford handed over the computer to Headmistress of the school, Deanne Retemiah.

The headmistress said that the computer will be very beneficial to the students especially since the school is already equipped with internet connection through government E-government programme. She noted that they face some challenges when the previous computer stopped functioning.

The students will soon benefit from the school feeding programme. She said that the school has received the booklet which they will have to fill out and submit by next week.
