Computer Centres

Each class spends 50 minutes per week in the Computer Centre. Lessons alternate between one week of computer skills and one week of Numeracy & Literacy.  Learners work on MS Office Suite (Word, Publisher, Excel and Power Point), the internet and various software programmes. An integrated approach is followed, in conjunction with that which is being taught in the classroom. Various projects and activities are planned around specific skills which the learners are required to master.

It is indeed a privilege to be able to empower our learners for the future with the technology which we have available.

Safety online

The internet offers children many opportunities for learning, constructive entertainment and personal growth. At the same time, parents and teachers are concerned about the risks which they face online. The challenge for parents and teachers is to educate themselves and their children about how to use the internet safely. We encourage our parents, along with our teachers, to educate their children regarding online safety.

Please remember that there are age restrictions to certain social media sites and it would be unwise to allow your child access to these sites if they are not yet age appropriate.

Veiligheid Aanlyn

Die internet bied kinders baie geleenthede vir selfverryking, konstruktiewe vermaak en persoonlike groei. Terselfdertyd, is ouers en onderwysers bekommerd oor die risiko’s waaraan kinders aanlyn blootgestel word. Die uitdaging vir ouers en onderwysers is om hulself en hul kinders ingelig te hou oor hoe om die internet veilig te gebruik. Ons moedig ons ouers, asook ons onderwysers aan, om met hul kinders te gesels oor aanlynveiligheid.

Onthou asseblief dat daar ouderdomsbeperkings op sekere sosiale media-webwerwe is en dit sal dus nie wys wees om u kind toegang tot hierdie webtuistes te gee as hulle nog nie die toepaslike ouderdom bereik het nie.
