The day has been celebrated worldwide on October 29th since 2005, to commemorate the first electronic message ever transferred from one computer to another, way back in 1969, in California, in the USA. International Internet Day is a reminder to all of us that this amazing invention started out with just two machines, long before we ever were able to login to trillions of websites put up by billions of users.

    I am so pleased to see the Ave Maria Primary School making strides in the Technology department. I am an alumna and will make connections with the school Principal on my next trip in 2018. Education is key in preparing our students for the future. Great Job!

    What do you mean by leading girls school. Couldn’t it have been an all girls primary school in Castries. What criteria was used to come up with ‘leading’.

    Flow provides trash service, im not sure i would want to support anything they do tbh. Ricky T should have thought twice before being a brand advocate for a company that gives such a low quality service. Dont setlle for mediocrity people. Take a stand. Boycott all things flow!
