Hurray for 200 tablets!
You did it! Thanks to your generous support, our 200 Year 12 students will be lent an iPad and will be able to reconnect with their final year studies during the continued lockdown. This is a huge step forward.
So we have the tablets, but no data…
Yahclick (Morclick) came to our rescue at 16 schools with uncapped satellite wifi installed at no cost for three months. This is a game changer for the schools. For the first time, they can connect to online resources and to students during lockdown.
Oh yes. Last week our team distributed food parcels via our schools to support some of thepoorest areas of uMzinyathi. This is all thanks to Pick and Pay and Boxer Stores (Nquthu Branch)who have ensured that 4436 people won’t go hungry for a few weeks through the Feed the Nationcampaign We were serenaded by the Cebelihle Primary School parents and grandparents whosang a beautiful song of gratitude.
This is just a small part of what we have achieved over the last three months though. We are hugely proud of the KHULA team who have worked with dedication and professionalism throughout. They have embraced technology (not easy when less than 30% of the team had access to a computer) and employed a variety of innovative teaching techniques to ensure that children from pre-school to Year 12 could continue to learn.
School may be closed, but learning is open!
