Namuka District School got a major boost to providing education when it received five tablets and Wi-Fi gadgets along with one year of internet access free.

“Our school doesn’t receive many grants but we thank Vodafone ATH Foundation for this kind donation,” said assistant headteacher Filimone Luvuwai.

The gadgets were handed over to Mr Luvuiwai by the Foundation World of Difference candidates Tevita Tokalauvere and Peni Tabua yesterday at the Vodafone Labasa Branch office.

“Now the students will have access to the internet. With the new curriculums, they will need to do their research online,” Mr Luvuiwai said.

“Even the teachers as well because we normally come down to town so it’s a giant leap with this donation as the school is 30 km away from town.

“We are also happy that Vodafone set up one network post close to the school which makes it easy for the Year One to Year Eight students and teachers to get access to the internet,” he said.

Mr Tokalauvere said: “It is a great opportunity for them to have a feel of the current technology trend and what they would expect when they enter secondary school.

“It will be good for them in terms of doing research work and other learning activities.”

He noted the foundation is making a difference in the lives of people at the grassroots level in terms of connectivity coverage in the Namuka district.
