Eastville Primary receives upgraded computer lab

Lace Up 4 Change organisation (LU4C) and partners Syntell PTY Ltd unveiled an upgraded computer lab for the pupils at Eastville Primary School.

Eastville Primary School in Eastridge now has an upgraded computer lab.

The school’s computer lab had been under-used as a result of faulty and broken computers. Of their 45 computers only four were working.

Lace Up 4 Change organisation (LU4C) and partners Syntell PTY Ltd unveiled an upgraded computer lab for the pupils.

They told the Plainsman on Tuesday May 3, the initiative with Syntell PTY Ltd is the second project of its kind and a huge steppingstone in LU4C’s vision to facilitate more self-empowering projects.

On Tuesday April 12, the Nal’ibali Trust joined them at the handover by supporting the school with books and access to their website where pupils will be able to enjoy reading materials in all of South Africa’s official languages.

Eastville Primary School from Eastridge has just over 1200 pupils.

The broken computers had severely hampered their vision of delivering world-class quality teaching and learning. The lab is used for educational programs like CAMI – Mathematics and Language and also their Green Shoots Mathematics program, which is a learning-enhancing tool.

Principal Kathrina Heynes said they are thankful for the journey of transformation at their school with LU4C. “The collaboration and the partnership is preparing them for the full industrial revolution and preparing pupils to be equipped with information and technology. Thank you for enhancing our reading as well. We are truly thankful,” said Ms Heynes.
