Charity organization Loreto Vietnam-Australia Program has funded a "computer room" at Le Loi Primary School in Ho Chi Minh City's suburban district of Nha Be.
Speaking at the inauguration at the school in Nhon Duc commune Friday, LVAP's CEO, Trish Franklin, said: "Information "˜explosion' and the immediacy of technological literacy (audio and visual) for all students has now become an urgent requirement."
With financial assistance from donors in Canberra, Australia, LVAP has provided the school 20 PCs, 20 chairs, a black & white printer, and two air-conditioners totally worth more than VND200 million (US$10,000).
The school's head teacher, Le Thanh Hai, thanked Loreto.
"We will make good use of the computer room to help students with their learning and make it useful for teachers in preparing and improving their lesson plans."
Tran Thi Manh, vice chairwoman of the Nhon Duc commune People's Committee, said: "Hopefully, full advantage will be taken of the computer room."
Nguyen Thi Thanh Nga, a fifth grader at the school, said: "I like the computer room very much.
"I'm not sure what I will become in the future, but I think this computer room can be very useful for me."
