GRANVILLE, Trelawny:

RESIDENTS OF Granville in Trelawny and students who attend Granville Primary School are now the proud beneficiaries of a state-of-the-art computer centre established at a cost of $3.2 million.

The facility, equipped with 26 computers with high-speed Internet service, a laser printer and copier, was made possible through the efforts of the Granville community in collaboration with the Social Development Commission's office in Falmouth and the Universal Access Fund Ltd.

Guest speaker at the handover ceremony held at the school last week Thursday, Hugh Cross, managing director of Universal Access Fund Ltd, acknowledged the sterling efforts of the community, parents and teachers who made the project possible. He made a commitment on behalf of Universal Access Fund to pay the cost of two years of Internet service to the facility.

Principal of the school, Ivanhoe Gordon, said the facility was a dream come true. He cautioned the students and residents to exercise care when using the equipment.
