Schools receive desktop computers

Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) donated 30 desktop computers to schools as part of the RB Haparan initiative which so far has included offering educational visits to RB Campus and Hangar.

The RB Information Technology support team visited the selected schools – Putat Primary School in Brunei-Muara District, Kampong Bukit Primary School in Tutong District, Labi Primary School in Belait District, and Selapon Primary School and Sultan Hassan Secondary School in Temburong District – to handover the desktop computers.

“Supporting local educational programmes is among the values we wish to establish and associate with RB.

“We are happy to donate the computers and hope that they will be of great use and a surprise to the students at the beginning of the new school term. We hope that initiatives such as this as well as the school visits we have been conducting, we are doing our part to contribute to the development of the future generations of leaders in Brunei,” RB Chief Executive Officer Captain Haji Khalidkhan bin Haji Asmakhan said.

RB initiated its RB Harapan initiative this year, within which the national carrier aspires to welcome 50 schools with the platform to supplement and broaden education for students through technical visits and sharing sessions at RB facilities.

The students will learn from engineers, cabin crew, pilots and administrative and managerial staff on the functions and duties they perform.
