Andrew Summers, founder and President of the Calabar Foundation, was pleased on his recent visit to Grahamstown on 25th August 2015, to see that the Good Shepherd Primary School computer laboratory is abuzz with activity.
Sifunda Kunye, the South African entity funded by the Calabar Foundation, paid for the new computer hardware, and also sponsors the salary of the Computer Lab Facilitator at Good Shepherd School, Gustaf Douws. Having Douws running timetabled classes for all Good Shepherd classes for all Good Shepherd Learners has meant that each learner spends at least three periods a week in the computer lab doing Cami maths, Cami Percep-tual, English Extension and other educational and IT-related activities. Gustaf Douws runs Computer Clubs in the afternoons for Good Shepherd Learners, and on Saturdays the lab is used for community members to do basic computer lessons. Over school holidays, township school learners from around Grahamstown participate in a Holiday Club run by Sifunda Kunye in the Good Shepherd School computer lab, in collaboration with St Andrew’s College.
