Three public primary schools from Isiolo County will benefit from the government’s Laptop project for Class One pupils.
Preparations to receive the laptops are complete in the three schools, one from each of the three Sub-Counties of Merti, Garbatulla and Isiolo. The pilot project will be carried out in 150 schools countywide in the first phase.
Muslim girls boarding from Merti, Waso primary from Isiolo and Matagari from Garbatula are expected to receive the gadgets starting Thursday.
Waso primary school head teacher Mr. Abdullah Rashid said the school expects to receive 98 gadgets Thursday, having completed the preparations as outlined by the government.
According to Rashid, three teachers have already been trained as part of capacity building on the handling of the equipment.
He expressed satisfaction in the way the project is being handled, saying that the gadgets have been modified to withstand a fall of up to four feet.
Pupils at the school were excited at the idea although it was not clear, whether upper class pupils would be allowed to benefit from the project, which targets class one pupils.
