Silverstar Donates R349,000

Silverstar recently donated R349,000 worth of computer equipment to Laerskool Muldersdrift in support of the school’s technology project.

The unveiling of the project to staff and pupils of Laerskool Muldersdrift, in association with Silverstar’s CSI committee, was held on Friday, 7 February 2014.

This project is extending the school’s current equipment with data projectors for each classroom and laptops for every teacher to utilise in the classroom from Grade 1 to Grade 7.

“We’re currently using interactive whiteboards and an e-learning system with great success in some classrooms which enable learners to actively participate in the classroom and achieve a higher quality learning experience,” says Herman Byleveld, Laerskool Muldersdrift Principal.

The school approached Silverstar for a donation and after Silverstar’s CSI committee approved the funding this project is now a reality.

“We’re pleased that our donation will better the teaching and learning experience at the school and as many of the parents are supportive of our business, we’re proud to make a difference in their children’s education,” says Shane Collinson, General Manager and Director of Operations at Silverstar.

Several learners can’t afford the luxury of a computer or tablet. “Our goal is to familiarise learners with current technology and also provide them with skills and opportunities outside the normal school modules,” says Byleveld.

The new equipment will assist learners to acquire skills such as the basic use of a computer and typing. The equipment will also facilitate various visual educational programmes.

“We as educators can achieve a quality teaching experience thanks to these technology aids,” says Byleveld.

Laerskool Muldersdrift, which celebrated its centenary in 2009, is a public primary school with 720 learners from Grade 00 to 7 and caters to children in Muldersdrift and surrounding areas. It offers the standard academic curriculum and various sport activities. The school’s motto is “Do it now” and with the new equipment the school can definitely live up to its motto.
