“Technical skills are crucial for a country’s success but while the world needs more Information Technology experts, the education system is actually delivering fewer.'’
In 1994 our first Computer centre was opened.
The equipment consisted of 15 workstations connected in a Local Area Network and 1 dot-matrix printer.
The Computer Studies learners at the time were very excited to work in this “modern” centre, displaying the results of their computer programs on monochrome screens!
Development and upgrading took place at a rapid rate over the years at Alberton High and we now boast two very modern computer centers.
These modern facilities and the skills of our highly qualified staff, enables the school to offer subjects like Information Technology and Computer Applications Technology.
These subjects give our learners the technical , creative as well as critical thinking skills which are all essential skills for today’s education and tomorrow’s highly competitive job market.
Since 2013 we took part in the NWU PAT GeeXpo competition and we are proud to say that our learners are a force to be reckoned with!
