Carty challenges students to use computers for self development as LIME offers reduced internet rates
Basseterre St. Kitts (September 10, 2011) — Telecommunications giant LIME’s current crusade, ‘Internet for LIFE’, received the support of the Federation’s Minister of Education, the Hon Nigel Carty, who called on the Federation’s secondary students to fully utilise the internet to do research for self development using government-issued laptops.
Minister Carty threw the challenge to the Federation’s students on Friday September 9 at the Basseterre High School during morning assembly, when LIME’s General Manager Mr David Lake announced that his company would be offering special internet rates to students in all the Federations’ secondary schools who have received laptop computers from the government.
“The Ministry of Education, represented by the Minister, is also a strong advocate of education in schools and the ministry has given students lap tops,” observed Mr Lake. The fourth and fifth form students present at assembly said that they did not have the laptops, but Minister Carty said that they would be issued with the laptops in three weeks’ time. “Each of you will get a laptop compliments the Government of St. Kitts and Nevis and the Ministry of Education,” assured Mr Lake.
