Modikwa donates laptops equipped with educational software to local schools



Three local schools received laptops installed with an educational software by the Modikwa Platinum Mine on Tuesday September 4.

Marole, Nakgwadi and Phutinare Secondary schools each received a laptop from Modikwa who collaborated with Howden and Today’s Destiny to handover the gadgets.

The laptops are equipped with a software that enables educators to teach Maths and Science subjects with ease. The handing over ceremony took place at Nakgwadi Secondary School.

Howden’s Geoffrey Chingwaru said that the educational software installed in the laptops is a tried and tested program. “We worked with a few schools in Mpumalanga and Gauteng and we have seen that their pass rate increased. We believe this will also assist the schools in and around Modikwa Mine.” Chingwaru said the laptops and software did not come at a cheap price, “They cost R112 000.”

Nontombi Mfuduka from Today’s Destiny said the software contains syllabus for grade 7 to grade 12. “This is a loaf of bread shared by a family of 12. This software includes Life Sciences, Physical Sciences as well as Mathematics. With these programs teachers will set question papers in about 30 minutes and also get memorandums.”

Modikwa’s Itumeleng Moncho quoted Nelson Mandela’s words that, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the
world.“Modikwa invest in education to improve the knowledge of locals in nearby villages”. “We need to fast-track the process of
learning. I believe there will be improvements in the pass rate of our kids in the coming years. Modikwa values education and has in the past years invested
in better education. This is one of our latest projects to help pupils access better education.”

Principal of Marole Secondary School Jennifer Depanyekga thanked Modikwa and its partners for the donation.  “We thank Modikwa for these thoughtful gifts which will go a long way in supporting the delivery of quality education. The laptops will help both our Science and Mathematics teachers and the pupils.
