Library engagement with Seiphemelo School

Apart from the recent donation to Abraham Kriel Child & Youth Care Centre, the Library Services of the Potchefstroom Campus recently donated 2 computers to Seiphemelo Secondary School in Ikageng.  Ms Louise Vos from the Library said that during a previous visit they were impressed with the neat and well organised library, but there were no computers where children can do their assignments or retrieve information.  Ms  Beauty Ratshidi, the school librarian indicated that the school welcomes any kind of assistance that will ensure that the school library remains  relevant and functional.  Mr Morajane, Education Specialist for School Libraries from the Department of Basic Education said that the donation may seem to be small, but he believes it will make a big impact on the lives of the learners.  Mr Martin Nokoane from the Library explained that educational software had been loaded onto each computer which will support and enhance teaching and learning.  He confirms that this donation is part of the NWU Library community engagement, to reach out to the community and to make the University visible, to establish relationships and to give back to the community in various ways.
