Three students Marcus, Rebecca and Jolin from ProCivitas Gymnasium School located in Sweden have recently visited South Africa to partake in a Partner Schools Project which is a natural wing of the Star For Life Programme. They donated laptops which were then distributed to SA schools. The main purpose of this initiative is to enhance computer skills and academic performance of learners since all the laptops are installed with Khan Academy program comprising learning areas or subjects that are in the South African curriculum.
