Shoolbags Still on Track to Get Lighter

We wrote earlier this year about the deployment of laptops into state schools in Kuala Terengganu, Malaysia. Some would think that is the end of the story and we never know whether they get deployed or not. This is the first programme of it kind in Malaysia.

We learnt today that year 5 pupils will have to wait until the end of next month but it is going ahead there are now just waiting for the delivery of the laptops from Shanghai. This is now scheduled for mid May. Under the programme, aimed exposing students to information and communications technology, 25,000 ebooks would be given to Year 5 pupils in the first stage will have lighter schoolbags.
