THE Presidential computerisation programme has become an empowerment tool in rural schools, with Dhlamatuli Primary School in Silobela being the latest to benefit.

It is a new dawn for Dlamatuli Primary School in Silobela in the Midlands province after receiving equipment to set up a computer laboratory.

The equipment is expected to improve the quality of education at the institution as learning is now hinged on information communication technologies (ICTs).

“To think that we didn’t have a single computer at this school in the past and yet we strived to get a reasonable pass rate. Now that the President has remembered us we can only promise the best. The teachers will use the equipment for research and our learners will also begin to have a hands-on appreciation of using a computer,” said Dlamutuli St Dominic Primary School Head, Mr Oscar Mawuto.

“I am grateful to our Head of State and government who also remembers us in rural communities,” said one of the community members.

Another added, “Our children can now learn in an environment that is equivalent to their counterparts in urban areas. We are very happy as a community to get such assistance.”

Government is excited about the initiative which dovetails with its inclusive development agenda.

“Ladies and gentlemen, we endeavour to attain a paperless economy that entails the use of the internet in schools for teaching, research, innovation, community services and industrialisation as defined under education 5.0 introduced by the Second Republic,” said Midlands Minister of State for Provincial Affairs and Devolution, Honourable Owen Ncube.

Meanwhile, the government has handed over a new ambulance to Silobela District Hospital in a move set to enhance healthcare services in the area.
