The Ministry continues to make significant investments in education through the piloting of the One Laptop Per Student initiative. It is anticipated that through the use of integrated technology in the classrooms, pupils will achieve a deeper appreciation of the concepts being taught. At the secondary level, each pupil is now the proud owner of a laptop which greatly enhances the teaching and learning process. Additionally, we seek to partner with other ministries in developing the creative talents of our students in developing applications which can provide substantial amounts of income over time. Hence, this initiative is geared not only for the immediate learning needs of our students but towards their overall long term development.
