GIS:-The Tapion Private School Received A Donation of Laptops that will Help Further Students’ Digital Competencies.
The Tapion Private School benefitted recently from learning tools that will assist in enhancing the effectiveness of teaching at the educational institution.
Minister for Education, Innovation, Gender Relations and Sustainable Development, Hon Dr Gale Rigobert, recently made a donation of laptops and a projector to the school.
Dr Rigobert said it is important to expose the young people to technology as they prepare for the digital world.
“We’ve got to recognize the paradigmatic shift and be in step to ensure that Saint Lucian students are not inherently disadvantaged because we have not adequately prepared them for the digital world,” she said. “In fact, it is a knowledge economy, an e-world, and so it is incumbent upon us as leaders in the education sector to ensure that our students have some digital competency.”
Board Secretary of the Tapion Private School, Lena Cadasse-Walker, expressed gratitude for the donation, and said it will assist with advancing the use of technology at the school.
“I know these resources will go a long way in assisting us,” she said. “We have the ambition to provide the best ICT environment that we can on island at a primary school, and also through our non-core curriculum, and we anticipate utilizing these resources in every aspect of our curriculum development moving forward.”
The Tapion Private School received six laptops and one projector.
