Dig­i­cel in School Web­site De­vel­op­ment

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

As the lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany in in­no­va­tion and tech­nol­ogy, Dig­i­cel con­tin­ues its pro­mo­tion and de­vel­op­ment of ICT ini­tia­tives across the is­land. In a re­cent col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion for the Na­tional Pri­mary School Web­site De­vel­op­ment Com­pe­ti­tion, Dig­i­cel, on Wed­nes­day July 6th, re­warded the top achiev­ers in this pro­gramme.

The com­pe­ti­tion was aimed at en­hanc­ing stu­dents’ the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal skills in web de­vel­op­ment, in­creas­ing vis­i­bil­ity for schools with web pres­ence and in­fus­ing in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy into the school cur­ricu­lum at an ear­lier stage. This op­por­tu­nity also al­lowed schools to bet­ter en­gage their alumni and re­main cur­rent in the ad­vance­ment of the school af­fairs.

Mar­ket­ing and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Ex­ec­u­tive at Dig­i­cel St. Lu­cia, Miss Louise Vic­tor who was present to re­ward the win­ners at the cer­e­mony com­mented on Dig­i­cel’s sup­port to the Min­istry and the pro­gramme: “Dig­i­cel, be­ing the leader in cut­ting edge tech­nol­ogy, al­ways seeks in­no­va­tive ways to not only get our cus­tomers but all sec­tors of our com­mu­nity to op­ti­mise use of their tech­nol­ogy. Given the heavy fo­cus on tech­nol­ogy in this ini­tia­tive, it was only nat­u­ral that as the lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany in the re­gion we pi­o­neer some­thing as rev­o­lu­tion­ary as this. We are grate­ful to the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion, In­no­va­tion, Gen­der Re­la­tions and Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment for the op­por­tu­nity to part­ner and con­trib­ute to their quest of in­creas­ing ac­cess to in­for­ma­tion for all St. Lu­cians.”

Dig­i­cel con­grat­u­lates all win­ners and the Min­istry of Ed­u­ca­tion on this ex­cel­lent ini­tia­tive.
