SOME 50 schools in Gauteng are this week set to receive information and computer technology equipment courtesy of a donation by Old Mutual South Africa Limited.
Member of the Executive Committee for Education, Panyaza Lesufi, will receive the equipment on behalf of the schools.
The project, now on its third year, forms part of Old Mutual’s effort to support the Department of Education’s vision of paperless classrooms.
“This will assist the department in its drive to ensure that more learners in Gauteng have access to a wealth of information relating to their curriculum needs through the use of ICT,” Gauteng Department of Education’s Head of Communication, Oupa Bodibe, says.
Over 165 schools in Gauteng have benefitted from this programme in the last three years.
