NORTHAM – Krause and Ysterberg Primary schools were given new top of the range computers on 17 September 2010.

On the day, 10 computers with Munsoft, a modern municipal Billing and Financial system already used by 33 municipalities in South Africa and in Swaziland, where given to Krause and Ysterberg Primary schools. Mr SJ Khumalo, Implementation Manager at Munsoft said that the handing over of the 10 computers is one of their social responsibilities. He further highlighted that IT is very much common in our everyday lives and that learners will benefit out of that. “As the municipality, we welcome your initiative. Together with other stakeholders, we correctly noted the fact that learners will benefit from this top of the range technology”, said Cllr PA Mosito on behalf of the Mayor. She further urged both educators and learners to use these magnificent products as tools for realizing their dreams. Learner’s future will be very bright through the efforts by Munsoft. The learners will also benefit a lot since most of employment requires computer skills throughout all sectors. They would like to thank Munsoft for their good gestures shown to the lives of these learners. The event was attended by amongst others Ms SJ Madela (District Senior Manager for Waterberg District Department of Education), Circuit Managers for both Dwaalboom and Thabazimbi circuits – Ms MR Ngoetjana and Mr MP Molapisi respectively, Mr Peter Balt (CEO of Munsoft), principals of Krause, Ysterberg, Heuningvlei, Deo Gloria, Ke Sarona and Mabogopedi schools as well as School Governing Body members from those schools. Ms SJ Madela thanked all the people for their time and a special thanks was given to all members from Munsoft for all the good work done to the community and learners at large. Lastly she indicated that computers will create opportunities for integrating ICT in the curriculum and provide an appropriate and efficient platform for preparation of lessons. Later in the day trees, which were donated by Thabazimbi Local Municipality, were planted at both Krause and Ysterberg Primary schools as part of Heritage Month.
