We are also infusing our schools with technology and over the course of this year, we are going to be making fiber connections to all of our high schools and we will be issuing devices to students from grade 3 up to fifth form. We are also rehabilitating our institutions and we would have started with a few schools, whether it is electrical upgrades or bathroom upgrades.”
