“The entire school is ready to go online. Every single classroom is now connected with the fibre optic cable, which means this is the school we will be modelling the blended approach from where students can be in the classroom using both the blackboard and the traditional means of education, as well as using their tablets and devices for work in each classroom.”
The ICT lab is equipped with 18 computer systems that will be utilised by the students.
