Empowerment despite poverty at Conville
Conville Primary in George battles unemployment and poverty in the community. The launch of their Khanya Computer Laboratory on 27 August offers hope.
The school regards itself as an investor in its future. Conville took full responsibility for the preparation of the Computer Laboratory. Geelhoutvlei Timbers, Keens and Kenmar, Walton's Stationers and Remas Repairs and Steelworks helped the school to realize their dream: Conville was able to transform two classrooms into a Computer Laboratory.
Dr Harold Wesso, Head of E-Innovation officially opened the Computer Laboratory. The school has been identified as the first E-Centre in the area. Conville hopes to employ a full-time facilitator who will manage the centre and offer accredited courses to adults, businesses and the youth.
