OPENING of a new computer lab for students in White River school promises much for the quality of learning of its students.
Vice chairlady of the school’s board, Mrs Hilda Tango, terms it as bridging the students to learning in the 21st century.
“Technology is everywhere and entwined in our daily lives so when technology in the classroom is use correctly it opens up possibilities for more students’ learning.
“As students uses technology to take more active role in personalising their own education, and teachers take on new roles as facilitator of knowledge rather than knowledge transmitter.”

Tema assured School administration and students, Education Authority of HCC will continue to support White River School.
