KG05 computer lab repairs

Posted on by Jaya

The computer lab at KG05 School was in a terrible condition as it was eight years old and had no budget for replacement parts or repairs.

KG05 IT parts donationThe Department of Education originally provided 11 computers but by early 2015 only three were still working serving a large rural school that teaches up to A-level.

At the principal’s request, our hardware manager Nuwan spent three days making an assessment at the school and repairing as many computers as he could.

We then provided new parts to get the rest back working again including new keyboards, power units and RAM.

Finally we bought an electrician to re-wire the lab as there were not enough plug points either.

Our next job will be to send Nuwan back to help the school network the computers together and provide a ceiling fan.

2014 PowerPoint competition

Posted on by Tharindu

Mahasenpura SchoolThis year we had 198 entries for the annual PowerPoint competition we run in conjunction with the Department of Education.

We were very pleased to see a big increase on last year’s 46 entries.

The winner was Nimesh Deshan from Debarawewa President’s Primary College, one of the largest schools in the area.

Nimesh’s theme was the classification of animals.

We liked it a lot because he had created his own animations and arranged his information in a logical and informative way.

Second place went to Inusha Damruwan from our own Mahasenpura School.

She chose a science theme – pressure.

Third place went to Nuwanthika Madhubashini from Viddyartha School who created a teaching tool covering the use of nouns.
