FREE INTERNET ACCESS FOR STUDENTS AND COMMUNITY AT NADOGO

9/10/2013

Five hundred and thirty students of Nadogo Central College and members of the Nadogo district community now have access to free internet.

This follows the opening of government’s second telecentre in the Northern Division today by Prime Minister, Voreqe Bainimarama.

The Prime Minister said that the opening of today’s telecentre gives ordinary Fijians access to the information superhighway and empowers them in a way that previous generations would have never imagined.

Commending the government initiative, Nadogo Central College head teacher, Sanjay Prasad said, “The opening of the telecenter marks a new era of information for the community at Nadogo as this will give us the opportunity to be linked to the rest of the world and be in par with the whole of Fiji.”

Form seven student, Kinisimere Vakamino said that now she and her fellow school collegues will be able to use the internet for school research topics.

“Previously we used to have limited access to internet and only a few students were allowed to use the computer,” Vakamino said.

Landowner and parent of Nadogo Central College, Ratu Solomone Catarogo said that he was grateful for government’s commitment to assisting the rural community.

“Our mataqali is thankful for the opening of the telecentre as our children will be able to work on their projects much better,” Ratu Solomone said.

“We will not have to travel far now to Labasa town as the telecentre is situated in a central location here in the school.”

The Prime Minister will also be opening the third telecentre for the Northern Division at Shri Guru Khalsa College this afternoon.
