MOE Provides Devices to Special Schools and ECCE Centres

  

On Thursday September 3rd 2020, seventy (70 laptops) were made available for the use of ECCE teachers, while ninety-eight (98) laptops were made available to public Special Schools for the use of children with special educational needs. At a brief hand-over at the Education Towers in Port of Spain, representatives of ECCE Centres and Special Schools received the devices from Dr. the Honourable Nyan Gadsby-Dolly and the Honourable Lisa Morris-Julian.

 

Provision of the Lenovo branded devices form part of the Ministry’s thrust toward ensuring that all learners have access to education in this ‘new normal’. As lessons, timetables and resources are prepared within this week, the Ministry continues to champion the cause for teachers and students who may not have access to devices or connectivity. The distribution of devices is being done in tandem with the Adopt-A-School Initiative, where over 15 corporate entities and NGOs within Trinidad and Tobago are in discussions with the MOE to contribute to the development of the nation’s children through sponsorship of digital devices and internet connectivity.

 

Persons or organizations interested in the donation of devices to students can send email to adoptaschool@moegov.tt or call 622-2181 ext. 1429 and 1426. Further information on the Adopt-A-School Initiative can be found at https://www.moe.gov.tt/adopt-a-school-program/.
