School receives laptops

Youth & Careers

AN Australian-based organisation has donated 12 laptops to a primary school in Western Highlands.
Litehaus International donated the laptops to Mt Hagen Tee Primary School to benefit its students.
Chairman of Litehaus International Jack Growden and its PNG agent Peter Raim handed over the laptops to head teacher David Numbamang last Friday.
Growden was accompanied by his father Neville.
It is one of the schools they have been providing computers to in Western Highlands.
Growden said education was a fundamental need and everyone should be educated, including knowing how to use computers.
“We are trying to help the children of PNG to increase their standard of learning with the use of computers,” he said.
Raim said it was important that children started learning how to use the computer at primary school level.
“Nowadays, we see that people are getting used to computers and these laptops will (benefit) our children,” he said.
Raim thanked Litehaus International for helping children have quality education.
“This is part of quality education and we believe many students are benefiting from the computer skills through the laptops delivered so far,” he said.
Numbamang thanked Litehaus International for the support, saying it would have cost a lot for the school to buy 12 laptops and they are very grateful of the support.
