Information Technology in Baobab Primary School
Baobab school has two computer laboratories that are equipped with thirty-five computer work stations each.
The lower lab is the base station where the students are introduced to basic computing, mouse skills, keyboard skills and touch typing skills. Students begin to realize that computers are all around us in our day to day lives. In this lab we plant the seed about the world of technology. Each student works independently and enjoys exclusive hands on use of the computer. This lab is designed for students from reception till standard three. It’s colorful and user friendly for our students.
