Saint Joseph’s Primary School is hoping to enhance its students’ digital capacity through a timely donation from a Rarotonga-based bank.

ANZ Cook Islands recently donated five full sets of refurbished personal computers to Saint Joseph’s Primary School.

The five sets of computer, screen, keyboard and mouse were presented to the school by the bank’s country head Jason Murray.

Usa Nawabalavu, ANZ Senior IT officer, who led this initiative, said: “This is a small token of appreciation by giving back to the community and investing on to the future generation of Cook Islanders.”

“These computers are the ones which the bank had replaced this year. This will also enhance the students learning as the world is evolving and things are getting digitised.”

School principal Savenaca Tukitoba said they were very thankful to ANZ for their kind donation, adding “this will definitely be available for our tamariki and staff in the next academic year”.

“We are planning to setup a place and a timetable for our children and staff to be able to access these computers. We’re hoping that it will help in improving achievement and service here in school in the future.”
