About the Project
Our Lady of Fatima School always strives to be relevant and current with regards to education. They recognised that they were part of an education system that was typical of the first industrial revolution in terms of traditional textbooks and teaching methods. They needed a solution to:
- introduce technology into their school that would be able to cater for all teachers – regardless of their age, experience or technology skill level – to ensure complete buy-in;
- prepare their learners for the future by introducing 21st-century best practices;
- introduce e-books in order to lighten school bags with fewer textbooks and files, and
- have less paper for the purpose of moving towards a more environmentally-friendly school environment.
Following two years of intensive research on several possible options, ITSI was chosen as the best possible partner for their journey.
Our Lady of Fatima Dominican Convent School, situated in Durban North, KwaZulu Natal, is an independent school, catering for girls from grade 1 to 12. Established in 1954, the school has 640 learners and a staff of 60.
