While giving their all to improve curriculum delivery and strengthen the learning of 77 students, dreams have come true for the teachers of Kavanagasau Sanatan Dharm School after they received $12,500 worth of computer equipment from the Tappoo Foundation.

Head of School Jitendra Kumar says they are very thankful to the Tappoo Foundation, the charitable arm of the Tappoo Group of Companies for providing them with IT support that will help them provide for their students with technical education.

Kumar says the Foundation recently upgraded the schools computer room which had only two computers before, with the donation they have three high-end laptops, three Smart LED TVs, three LED monitors and a set of stereo speakers.

Head of Tappoo Foundation and Tappoo Group of Companies Executive Chairman Kanti Tappoo says the donation was one of two initiatives that the Foundation undertook to celebrate the legacy of the late Tappoo Kanji, who founded the Tappoo company 82 years ago on August 23, 1941. Tappoo says the school means quite a bit to them because their late father was the third student enrolled when the school opened in 1933.

He says their father could only remain a student for a few months because he had to leave school, look for work and start earning his livelihood as his father could no longer afford to send him to school. He adds that being deprived of education, their father was always keen to support education and this is why it is a tradition in their family to also contribute to education as much as they can. Meanwhile, Kavanagasau Sanatan Dharm School achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in last year’s Fiji Eighth Year Examination.
