The Easter holidays were jam-packed with activities for PROTEC pupils, who participated in a variety of workshops. Grade 10 pupils attended a computer workshop where they learned a great deal about Microsoft Word, Excel and the internet.

“In today’s technological world, computer literacy is essential and our aim is to ensure that every learner on our programme is equipped with these vital skills,” said PROTEC manager, Marion Takis.

The highlight of the holiday programme was a visit to the Science and Technology Education Centre at UKZN Westville where they enjoyed a fun practical on graphs, a fascinating talk on the universe by Prof Petruccione and a magic science show by Dr Reinhardt.

PROTEC pupils also enjoyed a Career Day facilitated by UKZN and DUT where they learned about all the exciting study opportunities available at these premier institutions.

“All these programmes are designed to ensure that our pupils make wise and meaningful career choices and that they are well-prepared for successful entry into science, technological and engineering careers,” said Takis.
