Desktops for the new computer lab
Desktops for the new computer lab

Barack stood in the middle of the room, he was the sun. Mercy slowly moved around Barack, pretending to be the earth while Anna span as fast as she could around Mercy. Anna was the moon trying hard to keep up with the earth as Mercy rotated around the sun but it was hard work. Anna collapsed into a chair as the world spun around her. 

"So what does orbit mean?"

"To spin around!" the class called back.

Science lessons don't always involve getting dizzy but this was a fun way to explain the orbiting planets. Our students have just completed the first term of the current school year. Without the Fountains of Hope School, these young people would not be in school learning about stars and planets. Most would be at home caring for siblings, out working or on the streets.

Thanks to a great response to our microproject, we are setting up a computer lab at the school. We have 11 new desktop computers packed with learning resources and apps. We are busy doing repairs, wiring and fitting furniture while the students are on a two-week break. They will find the computer lab set up and ready to go when they return to school. 

The lab will mean our students will gain the I.T. skills that will open the door to many more jobs in the future as well as boosting their learning across the board as they can access rich and varied digital learning resources.

Thank you so much for your support to the Fountains of Hope School!
