ADT Teach launches in Midrand

May 2010 News

It was a day of excitement when the ADT Teach vehicle arrived at Allanridge Combined School (Rabie Ridge), Tsosoloso YaAfrica Secondary School (Ebony Park) and Umqhele Secondary School (Ivory Park) for the launch of the ADT Teach programme.

“These schools were specifically selected as they have the greatest need for IT education and we are very pleased to be able to provide a quality programme for these learners,” said Roy Rawlins, managing director ADT Johannesburg. “This day marked a monumental occasion in these young people’s lives.”

Francisca Chikondo was all smiles as she introduced herself to the eager learners and when the laptops were opened and powered up, it was all systems go. “Most of these learners have never even turned on a computer or touched a mouse so we are going to start with the basics and take it from there. They are, however, very enthusiastic to get started so I am sure we will progress quickly,” she said.

During the programme the learners will receive an hour of small-group instruction per week, during the school day, with some additional afternoon and weekend classes. Holiday workshops will be scheduled for the next school holidays.

“ADT is very proud to back a project of this calibre and hopes to empower the young people of this community in which we have built a strong relationship over the years,” Rawlins concludes.
