Chanel College gets help to go online

John Ryan and his wife who are former volunteer teachers at Chanel College in Samoa have set up a project to provide computers for the College.

The project has been given a big boost by a donation, from travel firm House of Travel Holdings, of 85 computer, monitors and servers and a week of IT technician work.

John and technician Adrian Miller spent 5 days in Samoa setting in place the infrastructure to enable the college to get connected.

Adrian has been following up with school staff in Samoa since his return to New Zealand to test the system and guide teachers there to getting it up and running.

For Adrian, who had never travelled to the Pacific Islands before, it proved to be a life-changing experience.

“It felt amazing to do something selfless, altruistic, knowing that I was part of something that was beneficial to so many people. I’m sincerely grateful for that experience. I’ve always wanted to do something like that and my company gave me that opportunity,” he said.
