On the last day of school in June 2009, 1,000 XO laptops reached the hands of eager school children of Puyang Primary School, Dujiangyan, Sichuan, marking an important milestone in OLPC APAC's pilot scheme to donate XO laptops to children affected by the massive Sichuan earthquake on 12 May 2008.
Puyang Primary School is the first school in China to ever receive XO laptops. First encounter workshops were conducted for students to familiarize them with the child-friendly laptop, and a school server had been set up to enable internet access and collaboration among the children. Follow-up is underway during the summer holiday.
