Thanks to the initiative of senior teacher Christo Frazenburg and ABET computer teacher Henry Mintoor, Luxolo Intermediate School is a beneficiary of Vodacom’s programme to provide computers to rural schools.
The school has been given 21 laptops for its computer centre –one for the teacher, and 20 for learners. The screens of the laptops can also be detached, so that they can be used as tablets.
The teachers received two days of training in September, on using the laptops together with an interactive whiteboard and data projector, and are delighted at their mastery of these new skills.
Principal Jan Mathiale, who worked closely with Frazenburg and Mintoor during the application process, is thrilled with the donation. He is busy working out the most beneficial way to use the donation, as most of the classes have 40 or more learners.
