Arnon Atomea School in North Malaita receives computers from our MP

Arnon Atomea Community High School last month took delivery of six computers worth $80,000 from North Malaita Member of Parliament Daniel Enele Kwanairara.

Deputy principal secondary Penuel Idusulia said the computers were delivered at the right time especially as the school awaits the completion of the new Distance Learning Centre funded by EU.

The ceremony, which took place on July 27 at the Malu’u based school, was witnessed by students, teachers, school board and the community. Mr Kwanairara and his secretary Francis Kairi were present to hand over the six computers to the school principal.

Mr Idusulia said the great vast world of yesterday has now been made small by the growing modern technology. “Therefore it is only right that the modern generation be exposed to modern technology such as computers,” he said.

Mr Kwanairara told the crowd that it is the desire of his heart to see that the rural children are not denied the privilege of having access to the knowledge and the experience in the use of modern technology. And it is from this desire that he saw fit that Arnon Atomea Community High School as the most senior high school within his constituency received the computers.

Chairman of the school board Bryan Ramalefo thanked Mr Kwanairara for his generous gift to the school adding that it certainly has marked a milestone in the educational development of the rural based school.

A demonstration of how to use the computer also took place during the ceremony watched by the curious people who gathered for the ceremony.
For many that was their first time to see the functions of a computer.
