Media Coverage

In 2014, four Highveld Secondary School learners approached ATNS and Airports Company South Africa’s Management to assist their institution with ICT infrastructure. The two entities responded positively to the request by sponsoring the necessary equipment.

Highveld Secondary School, which is in rural Mpumalanga, school has an overall staff complement of 30 educators and just over a 1000 earners. The school has three classes that have ICT solution requirements, namely, an IT centre, CAT centre and a library. Two classes already have computers and both entities have provided the third with computers and related infrastructure.

To date an end-to-end IT solution has been provided. These include 20 computers, two printers, a scanner, and the YTEACH programme* content. Air conditioners have been installed in all three computer labs at the school to monitor and maintain the temperature, air distribution and humidity in the computer laboratory. Educator training on how to use the technology has been provided.

The school has in the past few years achieved between 95% and 100% matric pass rate. It is envisaged that the above-mentioned ICT infrastructure will benefit the entire Elukwatini community.

The library was officially opened by the Deputy Minister of Transport Hon. Sindisiwe Chikunga, MP, in the presence of MEC for Education in Mpumalanga Ms. Regina Mhaule, MMC for planning and economic development, Cllr. Q Thabethe, Councillor of Aramburg ward 10, Cllr. Emelly Mkhabela, ATNS CEO, Thabani Mthiyane, CEO of ACSA Mr. Bongani Maseko, Principal of Highveld Secondary School, Mr. Magagula and principals from neighbouring schools, as well as a large contingent of businesspeople and pastors from different churches in the area.
