Another 150 primary and early-childhood institutions are to benefit from the Government's Tablets in Schools Programme.

Minister of Finance Audley Shaw has indicated that 80 tablet computers will be provided to each of the schools.

Shaw said this phase of the programme would focus on boosting the literacy and numeracy of primary and pre-primary students.

The finance minister indicated that the current phase of the Tablets in Schools Programme will come to an end in June.

The $1.4-billion Tablets in Schools Programme, which began in September 2014, has distributed 25,000 tablet computers to teachers and students in 38 educational institutions islandwide.
