THE capacity of 40 students to engage in virtual educational programmes has gotten a boost with tablets from the United States’ Embassy.

It is part of the Embassy’s Safety Pitch pilot project in collaboration with the Can Bou Play Foundation.

Acting Deputy Chief of Mission Joseph FitzGerald during the handover ceremony on Wednesday said the programme was halted after five weeks due to Covid-19 restrictions.

He said, “I am happy to provide these devices for the children’s use. I know under the guidance of the Can Bou Play facilitators there will be fascinating interactive programs to keep them engaged and improve their technical skills, especially as everything, including education, becomes virtual.”

While accepting the tablets, Can Bou Play Foundation’s Yohance Marshall assured that students would receive the devices later this week with programming to begin shortly after.
