New computer labs!

New computer labs!

Towards the end of 2018 Catch-Up decided to partner with The Click Foundation in order to revamp the dilapidated computer labs at our Catch-Up schools.  We managed to raise enough money to purchase and install a total of 150 laptops at three schools and their new labs were officially launched today!

Each school will now adjust its daily roster in order to ensure that every learner spends a few hours a week in the computer lab – during normal school hours.  This will enable the learners to practise their English and Mathematics skills in an interactive and fun manner, while each learner is individually monitored and assessed.

Catch-Up will then also use the computer labs in the afternoons after school, as well as on Saturday mornings, to specifically help the struggling learners who are on the Catch-Up programme.  The initiative will be rolled out to more underprivileged schools as we raise more funds.
