Positive Pro-Active St Augustine's Primary Rewarded
Mr Jannie Beukes, Director of the West Coast Winelands EMDC, praised St Augustine's Primary for the initiative it shows and the level of commitment and involvement evidenced at the school. It is, he stated at the launch of the laboratory on 15 September, because of this that they were selected to be a part of the Khanya Project and received a computer laboratory. He has great faith that the enthusiastic and committed staff, spearheaded by a dynamic principal and deputy principal, will use the laboratory to its maximum capacity for the development of its learners.
The school's laboratory was initiated by the Centre for E-Innovation and was driven by JC Van Wyk. Khanya and CeI established a computer laboratory with 20 computers, Cami and My World software. The computer literacy training at the school was done under the supervision of Andre Wiese and he facilitated the training in the software.
The launch ceremony was attended by a number of other significant dignitaries, including Dr Harold Wesso, the Deputy Director General of the Centre for e-Innovation; Mr Philip Duiker, a representative of the Municipality; and Mr L Davids, circuit manager for the school. Guests were treated to live entertainment and the donors involved in the laboratory received a certificate of appreciation with their logo on it. Finally, guests were treated to a demonstration by some of the learners in the Khanya laboratory.
