May 19, 2021

“During the week of April 26th 2021, the Chromebooks arrived on Island,” Minister of Education Diallo Rabain said in reference to the Chromebooks that were purchased thanks to a $500,000 donation from the Hasso Plattner Foundation.

Speaking during today’s press conference, Minister Rabain said, “In July 2020, we were pleased to announce that the Hasso Plattner Foundation had donated $500,000 to the Ministry of Education to purchase Chromebooks for the Bermuda Public School System.

“1,601 Chromebooks were ordered in August 2020, with an expected delivery of October 2020. Due to issues beyond our control and directly attributed to the Covid-19 pandemic, the delivery of these Chromebooks was delayed numerous times. Finally, during the week of April 26th 2021 the Chromebooks arrived on Island and were cleared by Bermuda HMS Customs.

“The Chromebooks have been counted for accuracy of units and we can confirm that the number ordered matches the number received. Also the configuration of all the Chromebooks has been carried out by the Department of Education’s IT Section. The Chromebooks are designated for students only at the primary school level.

“However, every student at the preschool, primary and middle level is now equipped with login in credentials which will enable them to access our remote learning and in-person learning platforms available from anywhere and during anytime.”
