Mrs Ajimobi who redeemed her pledge of donating Internet-enabled Personal Computer the computer room of St. Annes School, Molete, Ibadan, in commemoration of the school’s 149th founders day anniversary, maintained that every child must have access to education and must also be introduced to ICT at an early stage, adding that it is the future of education and the secret of great leaders.
The e-library, which is fully air-conditioned, has 25 PCs which were all enabled with internet facilities and has educative softwares installed. The computers are also gateways to lots of e-textbooks to prepare students for all external examinations.
The computer room started off as a project by the 1970-1974 Old Girls’ Association of St. Annes School, but received support from the wife of the Governor to enable the room serve more students.
The set President, Mrs Bukunola Orekoya appreciated the governor’s wife for supporting their project, promising to make sure that school puts it to good use in educating the children.
It would be recalled that the wife of the governor promised to donate the equipment during the inauguration of an e-library to the school by the 1970-1974 graduating set of the school.
