Sixteen new computers have been added to the Cayman Islands Further Education Centre computer lab courtesy of Foster’s Food Fair.
Students now have upgraded computer equipment on which to complete their creative media assignments.
Education Ministry Information and Computer Technology Manager Steven Durksen thanked Foster’s for its donation, noting that the new PCs would significantly enhance the work being done in the school’s information technology programme.
“With the number of resource intensive projects that will be undertaken, such as graphics manipulation, web site creation and video conferencing, the donation is timely,” he said. “It ensures that the students have the tools to get their work done both efficiently and professionally.”
Donated as part of Foster’s 30th anniversary celebration, the food retailer’s marketing manager Ayiesha Roberts said that the company wanted to give back to the community which had made it a success.
“We know that everyone — government in particular — is struggling during this recession, so we wanted to do something to help the school and thank the community,” she said.
