VERULAM school Glenhaven Secondary school was selected by the Department of Basic Education to receive a mobile e-learning centre valued at R13 500, sponsored by MTN.

The resource package comprises three laptops, 24 tablets, a server with an uncapped Wifi facility, an e-beam smartboard and a data projector.

The tablets and laptops came pre-loaded with Department of Education and SABC educational material for Grades 8 to Grade 12 pupils.

The mobile e-learning centre is equipped for every teacher at school with pre-loaded material which is CAPS compliant in all areas being taught in the classroom.

An added advantage is the immediate­ access to internet which every pupil has the opportunity to connect to in order to research and develop lessons being taught in the classroom.

The internet access has been limited to educational sites, which will enhance teaching and learning in the classroom.

Glenhaven Secondary principal Mr G Reddy said: “We are grateful to the Department of Education for choosing our school for this valuable resource package.

“While we have lots of challenges at our school in respect of non-payment of school fees and parental apathy, we believe this resource support will go a long way to enhance our delivery of teaching a learning.

“It is hoped that our pupils will make maximum use of these resources through the guidance of the educators at school.”

Reddy has the task of identifying an e-learning support teacher who will guide the entire staff in their promotion to an e-learning set up which is slowly expected to take off at Glen- haven­ Secondary.

A representative from the Department of Education, who delivered the resource package to Glenhaven Secondary­, expressed his delight saying he believed that Glenhaven was an excellent choice as they would use the resources to the benefit of pupils.

SEM of the Billy Nair circuit Mr SA Chetty was at Glenhaven Secondary with the principal to receive the major sponsorship towards a school in his circuit.

He also expressed his delight that a school in his circuit, which is continuously striving for excellence, has been rewarded with a valuable resource e-learning package sponsored by MTN.

Glenhaven is one of only two schools in the Tongaat and Verulam area that received the sponsorship.
