Samoa Primary School's free wireless internet has been embraced by students and staff.

The project, which is run over two years, has been set up by Computer Service Limited, or CSL.

The programme provides secure and safe internet access to schools across the country using money from its technology fund.

The school's co-principal, Anne Leauga, says internet use on the school's computers are fully utilised as a popular educational resource.

"Our older children, students from years 6, 7 and 8 classes, are able to download information, search for information, access required information for their projects. It's excellent. Of course our teachers too, become more literate with the use of computers, and are able to access information to help them with their own teaching. So its been wonderful."
