Students of Natewa District School, which is 60 kilometres from Savusavu Town, in Vanua Levu, can now enjoy internet connection.
Vodafone ATH Fiji Foundation donated $2500 worth of tablets and gadgets to the school on Thursday.
School head teacher Nimilote Naisorotabua said the tablets would allow students to access information online about the rest of the world.
“These technological devices will help students to explore the outer world from our remote and rural vicinity,” Mr Naisorotabua said.
“This will also enable our students to access information through email and publish the needs and issues of Natewa.
“Our friends and families could not believe that we downloaded Year Six and Year Eight exams papers, thanks to the internet access we have here.
He said they would utilise the internet to improve knowledge for their students and connect with the rest of the schools in Fiji.
The school has a roll of 72 students and four teachers.
It serves the communities of Vusaratu, Natewa, Dawa, Drelake and Domonisoso in Cakaudrove province.
Foundation executive officer Ambalika Devi said the tablets and internet connections were given for the purpose of learning.
“We would like the students to have priority access with the supervision of teachers,” Ms Devi said.
She said the foundation would continue to assist schools.
