Sharlene Vharitu, a Form 3 learner said she was happy that they now have access to the internet.
“I am happy that we have received computers and this will make us equal to learners in urban areas,” she said.
“This will also help us in our studies through having access to information on the internet. I would like to thank the Government for commissioning this lab because it will enhance our studies.”
Another learner, Ryan Dzvange echoed the same sentiments and said the computers will boost their studies.
“We are now able to use the internet just like learners in the urban areas. The computers will help us in our research and improve our education.”
Horseshoe Secondary School head Mrs Regina Musindo said the establishment of a computer lab was long overdue as ICT was one of the major requirements of the new curriculum.
“We are happy with this ICT programme because it will make the learners get equipped with ICT skills. The learners will have access to the internet and this will enhance their studies through access to information.
“The learners must have technology skills as part of the new curriculum requirements and the lab will go a long way in enhancing education at the school. The community will also benefit from these computers,” she said.
