Integrating iPads into classrooms has been taken to a new level at St Andrew’s Preparatory School and the Diocesan School for Girls junior school in Grahamstown in the Eastern Cape.
Karen Hobson, from the former, and Ilze Allman, from the latter, have become the only two ISASA educators to achieve Apple Authorised Education Trainer status in the Eastern Cape. Countrywide, there are only 12 such trainers.
Hobson and Allman are now superbly equipped to help other educators infuse Apple technology into their instructional practices and curricula, in a way that makes the technology transparent and the learning exciting and engaging.
At St Andrew’s College down the road, a ceremony was held on Lower Field to name and christen five boats — four of which were purchased earlier this year through the generosity and efforts of the St Andrew’s College Rowing Parents Support Group and Old Andreans (OAs).
The boats were named after influential OAs and staff: George Repapis, Geoff Rushmere, Keith Anderson, Axel Ohlsson and Mickey Paterson.
