Nine students benefiting from the Bank of Sierra Leone Charity yesterday received Toshiba Lap Top computers each to enhance their academic performance in universities at the University of Sierra Leone IPAM Campus.
Beresford Taylor Public Relations Officer at the Bank of Sierra Leone said the Board of Trustees of the Bank had procured the lap tops for the awardees as a result of their request to meet their university need to enable them achieve their academic goals.
Speaking at the handing over ceremony Board Chairman Professor Redwood Sawyer said the sponsorship of excellent students is a core to the Bank of Sierra Leone and the Lap Top computers will be an additional value to the awardees for their report writing and studies.
He called on the students to start submitting computerized reports to the Board of Trustees as the computers are loaded with Microsoft software programmes. He encouraged the students to make good use of the computers for internet researches to enhance their educational performance.
He strictly warned the students to take good care of the computers as they are on loan until they complete the program before it is handed over to them.
The nine students who received the computers are Mariama Swarray, Hannah Sam, Rashidatu Conteh, Joseph Sengeh, John Kamara, Josephine Mansaray, Mohamed Lopez, Bobson Sesay and Hadja Souvula.
