Pupils of Factreton Primary School have received a technology-enabled “pop-up” classroom in support of the province’s e-learning initiatives.

Provincial education minister Debbie Schäfer received the donation on behalf of the department at the handover ceremony at the school.

The school received an interactive whiteboard, a projector and its stand, a teacher computer and 30 two-in-one Wi-Fi-enabled devices, desks and chairs.

JP-IK (Pty) Ltd donated the equipment to the education department for evaluation.

The education department has established 4267 smart classrooms over the past two years, in addition to upgrading computer laboratories.

“The donation reflects the commitment of the Western Cape government to work in partnerships with the private sector and civil society to ensure an enabling environment for e-learning,” says Schäfer.

The other schools benefitting from the donation are Melton Primary School and Rouxville Primary School.
