PwC Bermuda has donated 120 computer monitors to be used by students at the island’s public schools.

The donation, made to the Department of Education this week, is intended to help Government improve Bermudian student’s access to the latest technology.

Arthur Wightman, PwC Bermuda leader, said: “Technology in education is fundamental, not least because it is future oriented, it makes learning interesting, it supports collaboration and it serves to develop a wide variety of skills.

“Long term, we share Government’s vision that Bermuda can diversify its economy through technology but in order to do so Bermudians need to be put in a position to take fulfilling and rewarding roles in this growing industry.

“Our people wanted to make this donation to contribute to this wider objective.”

Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education and Workforce Development, thanked the company for the donation on behalf of the Department and its students.

“The monitors will be installed in computer labs in all our public schools,” he said.

“Government stands on the principle that Bermuda works best when we work together, and this is a fine example of how businesses and corporate partners can support our students by sharing resources to assist with their education.”
