A brand new touchscreen computer has been donated to Motusa District School for better access to learning materials online.

The Fiji National Provident Fund donated the Acer Aspire z3-615 computer, in an effort to help develop learning capacities of more than 80 students at the school.

Head teacher Marseu Mauveli said the computer would be used by their administrative officer to update the school’s FEMIS and access learning materials as well.

 

“Here at the school, the teachers use their personal laptops to type out exam materials and more, but with this, it would push our service delivery further,” he said.

“We are so honoured to have been given this kind of computer especially when it is one of the latest. We thank FNPF for thinking about our students who are far away from the mainland.”

The school had a 75 per cent pass rate in the last academic year.

A similar computer was distributed to two other primary schools on the island.

 

FNPF team leader member awareness and advocacy, Matai Daulako, said FNPF wanted remote students to be able to access educational services as easily and quickly as those on the mainland.

FNPF, through the Rights, Empowerment and Cohesion (REACH) project team, is on the island registering people for various savings services. One of their services include registering children for the Voluntary Account for Minor Members.

“We are doing this for their betterment, especially giving them a better chance at receiving higher education,” he said.
