Hon Nelson Chamisa, the Minister of Information, Communication and Technology, ICT, and Member of Parliament for Kuwadzana East, today officially opened the Kuwadzana 4 Council Primary School E-Library at the school.
Speaking to parents, school children and various school heads and dignitaries, Hon Chamisa said it is important for children to know how to use computers effectively for their development.
"It is important for us to invest in the children because among these are the future leaders; the future ministers; the future presidents of this country, so we need to put proper structures in place that they may learn. It is a pleasure to know that our children in Kuwadzana can learn the same things as those in other developed areas," he said.
41 HP desktops were donated by the Minister.
He urged teachers to teach the students those elements important to the children.
"Internet is a tool. It can be used positively, but it can also be used destructively. We need to ensure the teachers know how to use this system so that they may in turn teach the students effectively for their growth. This tool ought to be used to develop the minds of the little ones and expose them to a world of possibilities at this age so that we groom confident children from Kuwadzana," he said.
Parents at the school ensured that the computer lab was furnished and secure, before they approached Hon Chamisa for the computers.
Hon Chamisa said it is his desire to ensure that more computers are found so that each student may have access to a computer during class.
Most classes have up to 50 pupils each.
