The government will implement a programme to supply laptop computers for fifth formers sitting for Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination in Sarawak in a bid to bridge the digital gap and facilitate exposure to information technology among students.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said the pilot project will benefit about 33,000 fifth formers in 188 secondary schools statewide.
He said the laptop computers would be supplied to each of the students either in the form of rental or loan.
After completing their SPM examinations, the students will pass on the computers to the next fifth formers.
No further details on the project was revealed, but the government did supply 1Malaysia netbooks to students nationwide previously.
