                      ACAOSA-UK donates PCs, Laptops and Broadband Internet to the College

 

 

 

 

 

Students of Anwar-ul Islam Model College, Agege resumed back from the Eid-Mubarak holiday in December 2009 and discovered that the school library has been fitted with ten Compaq PCs together with high speed broadband Internet. The PCs were also fitted with high resolution web-cam and headsets for messenger and social networking capability.

Students rushed straight to the library on the news of the new addition to the library. The excitement and appreciation was visible on their faces as they swarmed round the PCs trying them out for the first time. The librarian, Miss Giin had a very busy morning showing students on how to get grip with the new technology. Miss Giin said “the library is usually quiet and deserted because there was nothing here that interest the students, but now, they are always here surfing the internet”
