Tuesday, 11 October 2011
Rheenendal Primary School outisde Knysna in the Southern Cape has become the fortunate recipient of a fully equipped computer centre, one of four that the Vodacom Millionaires programme donates to nominated public schools across South Africa monthly.

Portia Maurice Chief Officer, Corporate Affairs comments, “Vodacom has donated computer centres all over the country and many of them are based in remote rural areas. To date, we have donated almost 250 computer centres. Our donation to Rheenendal Primary is very special and in honour of the little angels of the school who tragically lost their lives in the bus accident. We hope that both learners and the immediate community will benefit from this computer centre. Vodacom is very proud to make a difference to the lives of learners at Rheenendal primary.”

A memorial garden will also be unveiled on the school premises where indigenous trees will be planted in memory of the learners who died recently. 

Vodacom is committed to education and improving access to technology for learners to supplement their learning experience. The school will also receive four WebBoxes with free data in line with the Vodacom strategy to put the power of the internet into people’s hands.

To date Vodacom through the Vodacom Millionaires programme has opened more than 220 computer centres at public schools across South Africa. The computer centre consists of 25 laptop computers, 4 webboxes, 4 lcd screens with free data for 12 months.
