Year 10 students at Cosmo City Secondary School are ready to learn with the new tablets they received from the Gauteng Department of Education (GDE).
Learners received tablets from the department on March 7. The school is embracing e-learning and hopes the department can provide all grades with tablets to prevent other learners from taking from grade 10 onwards.

“Also, we are grateful for these tablets as now all Year 10 students can receive work that teachers send them to do while at home and the school would like the Department of Education to distribute these tablets to all classes.”
School board representative and teacher at the school, Patricia Semenya, said: “These tablets help our learners to connect with GDE content, they can learn without a teacher and access past questions and memoranda and to instructional videos that will help learners who are best at learning through audio and visuals on their own.
Grade 10 students expressed their enthusiasm for the tablets they were given. “As a more eager learner to learn to navigate on this tablet, I am also excited and motivated to be able to study on my own and be able to access GDE content without my teacher present,” said one. learners, Otshepeng Malebye.
