STUDENTS at Four Stars Communication School in Kokstad graduated in various courses last Friday.

Zamajola Manyane from Ntabankulu and Cacadu JSS Grade 9 pupils, Zingisa Menziwa and Zine Siwomo, completed computer training.

“Understanding how to use a computer is going to help me when I go to university,” said Nolufefe Mrwetyana after graduating.

In 2009, former teacher Nokuthula Memela started the school in a container in Mount Ayliff. It then moved to new premises in Kokstad.
Last year 90 students completed a one-year end-user computing course; 34 completed a four-month advanced computer literacy course; 26 completed a six-month office admin course; and 96 completed a basic computer skills course.

“I established the school for young people to get computer skills in order to be employed easily. Many government departments and municipalities send their employees to the school for training,” said Memela.

The school has trained six municipal councillors and 20 staff from Mhlontlo Local Municipality. The Department of Education in Mount Frere sent 45 clerks and 45 principals for computer training at the school. “The school also trained 20 employees from the Kokstad Department of Health,” said Memela.
Greater Kokstad Municipality mayor Bheki Mtolo was at the graduation in support.
