Yat Sen School in Suva has become the first in the nation to boast an artificial intelligence (AI) facility.

This along with lions prop and books were gifts from Guangzhou, capital of Guangdong, province in China.

Minister for Education Rosy Akbar said the donations would boost the participation of students in their academic progress and cultural development.

“We are moving into an era where technological advancement is a reality which we must embrace. Technology plays a vital role in teaching and learning in our classrooms as we prepare our students for the 21st century,” she said.

“We have begun to introduce smart classrooms in some schools and are working to expand this to more schools in the next financial year.

“Together with extending the number of schools with internet access, I hope that we will soon be in a position to develop e-learning opportunities for our students. With the ongoing reliance on computers, internet, mobile phones and soon artificial intelligence, it is incumbent on the education system to keep pace with technological developments.”

Mrs Akbar said the partnership with China continued to grow to another level of excellence.

“We once again acknowledge the enormous contribution of the People’s Republic of China and we look forward to ongoing fruitful co-operation,” she said.

The donation including the artificial intelligence facility were gifts from Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. The artificial teaching facility will allow students to learn a number of subjects in a more advanced manner.
