The opening of a new telecentre today will provide a new ?window of opportunity? for students studying at the Sila Central High School.

This morning the Prime Minister Voreqe Bainimarama opened a new telecentre at the school located in Nausori.

The School?s head boy 18 year old Sailosi Temo said that accessing the internet now at school for free is a historic development for the students as preparing simple researches are now part of studies.

?In the past, the students would travel to Nausori town or even to Suva to access the internet for research purposes however with the tele centre situated in school we will be able to save costs and access the internet for free,? Sailosi said.

?We are thankful to the Bainimarama Government for providing this easy access to the internet. This will not only serve a good purpose for the children here but for the nearby communities,? Sailosi said.

?You may be close physically to our nation?s capital. Many of you may have mobile phones. But I know that very few of you have had access to personal computers and internet connection,? Prime Minister said.

?Through the computers at this Tele-centre, my Government is giving you free access to one of the marvels of the modern age ? the Internet,? Prime Minister said.

School Principal Ane Rika acknowledged the Fijian government for their efforts in nominating Sila Central School to be the internet hub for the people in Nausori to connect to the world.
