Sibbinda Primary School gets 30 laptops and ZeduPads

KATIMA MULILO: The Sibbinda Primary School in the Zambezi Region yesterday received 30 brand-new laptops and seven iSchool ZEduPads as a donation.

The laptops and ZEduPads contain applications of different subject codes to enhance teaching methods during lessons.

These were donated by Percy Wachata Misika, who works for the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation in China.

The ZEduPads are touchscreen Tablets first introduced in neighbouring Zambia in October 2013 to go hand in hand with that country’s primary education curriculum.

The ZEduPads do not need Internet access to operate, and its batteries can be charged using electricity of solar power.

The ZEduPads have a programme teachers can use for extra mural lessons, especially for Maths, English, Lozi and other subjects of relevance in Namibia.

Misika and his wife Ntombi made the donation as a token of giving back to the community they hail from, saying the laptops and ZeduPads, which are valued over N.dollars 100 000, will enable the school’s management to also create a fully functional computer class for Grade One to Grade Seven learners.
