The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture is the recipient of 15 laptops courtesy of the accounting and auditing firm Deloitte.

The laptops will go to students in need of devices for blended learning in the new academic school year.

Minister, Dr. the Honourable Natalio D. Wheatley said that the ministry is preparing for the new academic school year where students will be exposed to online and face-to-face learning.

“These laptops will allow some of the many students who still need devices to be able to participate in this blended learning experience,” Honourable Wheatley said. He added, “We express our sincere gratitude to Deloitte for their commitment to the education system as we make this transition.”

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Youth Affairs, Fisheries and Agriculture looks forward to continued partnerships as it strengthens the preparation of students to cope with a changing global landscape and make a meaningful contribution to society.
