Students of the Little London Primary School in Westmoreland, now have a computer lab and library, which have been provided by the Negril Education Environment Trust (NEET).
The facility, which was furnished and equipped at a cost of $800,000, was officially opened on October 31, and forms part of the Trust’s plans to establish four such across the parish. This undertaking is being funded through a $3.5 million grant from the Environmental Foundation of Jamaica (EFJ).
Speaking at the official opening at Little London, Chief Executive Officer of NEET, Melville Harris, announced that computer labs and libraries will be put in place at the Broughton, Friendship, and Moreland Hill Primary Schools by April 2009. He also said that plans are underway for a fifth computer room to be constructed at the Bethel Town Primary School.
Territorial Education Officer in the Ministry of Education’s Region Four, Eric Coote, commended NEET for initiating the project, which he said will redound to the benefit of the schools, and the wider communities.
The computer lab at Little London occupies a refurbished 40-foot container, the design for which will be replicated at the other schools.
