The FirstRand Namibia Foundation Trust of First National Bank (FNB) handed over 10 refurbished computers to Eldorado Secondary School on 9 November at the school’s premises.

Speaking on behalf of the foundation at a media conference, Leslie Pursia said they are delighted to assist the learners with the computers.

“FNB has the responsibility to contribute to the skills development of the 852 learners of the school and to support the nation for equitable prosperity and ensuring a sustainable inclusive economy,” he said.

Pursia added the donation will make a difference to the students and will not only in improve their access to information, communication and technology, but also enhance their skills in computing.

“It will enhance their understanding and appreciation of ICT and provide learners and teachers with new tools that enable improved teaching and learning in various subjects,” he said.

Pursia added the foundation aimed to provide an opportunity to teachers and also transform their educational practices by giving them improved educational content.

He said the computers must improve the learning process through the provision of more interactive educational materials that increase learner motivation and facilitate the easy achievement of basic skills.

Eldorado Secondary School principal Salwa Khedr expressed her appreciation towards the foundation.

Khedr said the computers are going to be used to increase the learner intake for the school’s ‘office practice’ subject, which is currently doing very well and sees learners achieving a 100% pass rate with good quality symbols.

Khedr said two computers will be used in the library, with one of them being used for the school’s Glob project.

The school has been selected by the United States’ National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to serve as a Glob school.

“We are sincerely thankful to FirstRand Namibia Foundation Trust for their support and invest in education,” she said.
