We have SMARTboards in our classrooms
We embrace 21st-century learning by having SMARTboards in our classrooms from the foundation phase onwards. This enables our dedicated teachers to use interactive teaching methods to engage with the learners. We also have state-of-the-art computer labs for an exciting yet safe foray into online adventuring. Our learners further benefit from the use of technology when it comes to sport. We have organised e-gaming competitions through which we develop professional players and teams among our learners.
