THE Mt Hagen Secondary School in Western Highlands recently launched its online library programme with the help of Telikom Foundation.
Telikom Foundation board trustee George Bopi urged the 1,500 students to take education seriously and make the best of the resources available for learning.
“There is opportunity to advance with the latest technology in use and you must make the best out of the services provided by Telikom,” Bopi said.
He said library books in many schools around the country had become outdated and information gathering and research were not properly done.
With the online library, students will be able to carry out research and complete assignments with quality information.
Students and teachers welcomed the online service and thanked the Telikom Foundation for connecting the school’s 100 computers to the programme.
“On behalf of the school, I want to thank Telikom Foundation for
this very helpful initiative for
schools,” Grade 12 student Job Bopo said.
“We are privileged to have this service and the Clean IT programme will take us to the next level.”
Mt Hagen Secondary School is the first in the highlands region to use
the service since connecting to it last year.
