Soroban education started in Tonga since the 1970’s and has served as one of the foundations of long-standing and strong ties between Japan and Tonga. Soroban has also been proven to contribute to strengthen mathematical skills of primary students, hence incorporated as a compulsory element of the mathematics subjects from Class 3 to Class 5 in Government Primary Schools in the Kingdom.
The Tonga Soroban Competition is co-hosted annually by the Embassy of Japan in Tonga and the Ministry of Education and Training since 2010. The Competition started with the annual Regional Competitions in the outer islands and districts in Tongatapu before the National Competition.
