LENNOX ISLAND, P.E.I. – Carson Thomas thinks he will be better equipped going forward in doing Internet searches for school projects.
Thomas, and his fellow Grade 5 and 6 students at John J. Sark Memorial School on Lennox Island, spent two hours after school each day for an entire week this month receiving computer animation and programming training.
Prince’s Charities Canada, the charitable office for Prince Charles, partnered with One Laptop Per Child Canada to provide computers and training to indigenous youth.
Lennox Island was one of seven First Nations across Canada to benefit from the pilot project.
Matthew Rowe, director of operations, Prince’s Charities Canada, said the participating schools and their students get to keep the computers.
