Frogfoot Fibre School Promotion with Kommetjie Primary School
Throughout the Fibre rollout across South Africa, we have recognized the need for schools to adapt to an ever-changing educational landscape. Chalkboards have been replaced with digital smart whiteboards, and chrome books have been implemented in lab rooms, making traditionally set lessons more fun and interactive. The availability of fast and reliable internet opens up learning that encourages independent study in classrooms and ultimately enhances the function of schools.
Frogfoot Fibre is proud to offer schools within the Fibre to the Home (FTTH) coverage areas a free 1 Gbps fibre line. Kommetjie Primary School is one of our first schools who joined our school promotion, and we recently had the opportunity to interview the IT teacher and some learners to find out what their experience has been.
Lucy Winter, the IT teacher from the school says Fibre allows the learners to have a blended learning curriculum. The school was able to add chrome books in the lab and, because of Fibre, the students are able to take part in the Green Shoots Maths program. They were also able to implement robotics and coding, allowing the scholars to have a full digital experience.
Together with their Internet Service Provider, Vox, we are proud to provide the school with a stable and reliable Internet connection. We are firmly entrenched in communities in which we build and invested in bringing Froggin’ Awesome Fibre to education.
