Dreketi High School in Macuata was given 10 tablets on Tuesday by Vodafone Fiji Foundation.
The devices will help the students do research work via the Internet.
Given the school’s remote location, principal Amelia Dunbar said they now had the opportunity to access learning materials and conduct research work with the new tablets.
“Students are fortunate that they can now access the latest technology,” Ms Dunbar said.
“It will also create an interactive and innovative method of learning for our students.”
She said they were indebted to the Foundation for the timely support.
Duke of Edinburgh Awards Scheme co-ordinator Nazeel Nixon Ali said the support from Vodafone Foundation had encouraged them to uphold the Awards’ principles.
He said social services, leadership development, income generation and skills development were some of the things they did under the programme.
Vodafone Fiji Foundation Executive, Ambalika Kutty said they had been supporting the school for years now and DEAP students have mooted various income-generation programmes.
Vodafone Fiji Foundation, which was established in March, 2004, has been supporting the Duke of Edinburgh Programme since 2009 and has reached more than 100 schools.
