Bovet Primary School Mobile iPad Lab for Bovet Primary School

Bovet Primary School situated in the Alexandra Township, Gauteng, was the recipient of a mobile iPad lab sponsorship from iSchool Africa.

iSchool Africa is an education initiative that was developed by Core Group. The initiative reaches schools across South Africa in rural and urban settings. The iPad learning programme is one of three programmes that they currently run. The programme has already reached approximately 32 000 learners and 750 teachers.

The iPad learning programme includes a 20 iPad mini, Macbook Air and Projector sponsorship. The iPad minis are pre-loaded with apps that are compliant with the national school curriculum and will support school work schedules. A trainer will be working with the teachers at the school, with the idea being that the school will be able to run the programme on their own after six months.

Bovet Primary School 12600 text messages in three different languages

12600 text messages in three different languages. This is what it took for Bovet Primary School in Johannesburg to ensure that their School Governing Body (SGB) meeting was a successful one, and a success it was!

For a full week in the run-up to the school’s SGB meeting, some 450 parents received SMS messages to their cell phones, encouraging them to attend the meeting and to take up an active role in the education process of their children.

A method which seemed to work because came D-day, parents turned up in heaps and bounds, a first in the history of Bovet Primary School.
