On Friday, 14 May, our Project Manager: Curriculum, Pumeza Tena officially handed-over a Life Science Laboratory to the educators of Sediba-Thuto Secondary School. Investing in the integration of ICT into school curriculum, administration and learning culture is part of our sustainability roadmap.
Tena facilitated a half day training workshop to demonstrate the usage of the Life Science laboratory equipment to the subject teachers. This is to ensure that theoretical lessons from the classroom and textbook are translated to practical experience – this way the equipment benefits both the educators and learners’ experiences of teaching and learning.
Receiving the structure on behalf of the school, Principal Mr Mokoena enthusiastically thanked KST for the excellent work.
“I can assure you that this lab will produce future Scientists. I also want to thank the KST team for the magnificent work in putting this event together and providing training for the teachers.” Mr Mokoena said.
He further added that theirs is to make sure that learners acquire all the necessary skills and information; and as a community ensure that the infrastructure and equipment are protected and preserved.
Our District Manager, Nathan Pillay, said the Organisation places community participation at the centre of its success.
“Our model does not only benefit learners and educators, but the community at large. It is the local community parents and members that build these facilities. This means that the project contributes towards the upliftment of the local economy. The community members that do work on the projects are extremely grateful for the employment opportunities they get during the construction period. Their construction skills are also improved through the skills transfer that happens on site,” Nathan said.
