New Vistas for the Children of Vanwyksdorp Primary

The launch of the Khanya computer laboratory at Vanwyksdorp Primary promises to open new doors for the learners at the school as it expands their horizon and challenges them to make significant changes in their lives.

The tiny farming community served by this school welcomed their guests at the launch – Mr and Mrs Pieter Coetzee, enthusiastic supporters of the school and major donors to this project;  Ms Liz Dekker of Eskom and Mr Peter Adams, Khanya facilitator at the school. Mr Coetzee was thanked by the principal for his commitment to the school and the contribution he had made to the infrastructure of the laboratory.  Thanks to him the world of these farm children has been broadened exponentially.  Cutting the ribbon, Mrs Coetzee officially opened the laboratory. In his address, Mr Adams urged educators and learners to use the laboratory optimally so that learners are thoroughly prepared for the world of technology that awaits them.  The laboratory, he added, holds a myriad of opportunities for the learners of Van Wyksdorp Primary, not least of which are improved literacy and mathematical skills and improved self-confidence. Guests were shown around the Khanya computer laboratory and were mesmerised by the demonstration by the grade 7’s of their newly acquired presentation skills. A positive attitude and the desire to learn and to succeed are vital ingredients if this computer laboratory is to make the difference in the lives of the learners that it has the potential to do.  All of these Van Wyksdorp Primary have in abundance.
