The Covid-19 pandemic forced the closure of schools and the education system was transformed into online learning platforms during the last year.  As such, the Rotary Club of Princes Town recognized that many students within the Princes Town Schools were unable to access online learning due to a lack of electronic devices and donated 30 tablets to students from St. Stephen’s College, Princes Town West Secondary School and Cowen Hamilton Secondary School.
Parents of the students who were identified by the Schools’ administration met with President Rishi Ramlogan and Director Dr. Lindsey Aziz on July 1st and July 8th 2021 at the schools’ compounds where President Rishi demonstrated the use of the tablet.  The Club chose the Lenovo 8” Smart Charge Tablet with Google Assist as the one most suited for the needs of secondary students who can now join their classmates in online synchronous learning with their teachers.
The donation of the tablets was facilitated by a grant from the Rotary District 7030 to the Club in their aim to transform education and change the lives of the students who need help the most.
