Siya Kolisi gives back to his former primary school
Springbok rugby captain Siya Kolisi's dream has become a reality. He partnered with iStore in the #iSchoolAfrica programme to provide rural and township schools with iPads.
Kolisi posted images of himself at Port Elizabeth's Emsengeni Primary School, which he attended as a child.
He said the initiative helps provide under-resourced schools with technology.
"This initiative is not only impacting the lives of the students by helping them find their passion, but also teachers in under-resourced, rural and township schools. Can't wait to see what these kids do one day!"
Polity reports that the programme will include the roll-out of a mobile iPad lab, curriculum apps, ongoing teacher training and the monitoring of results.
The school received 20 new iPads as part of the programme.

Today my dream became a reality for this generation at Emsengeni Primary School. What an amazing morning handing over 20 brand new iPads from @istoreza as part of the #iSchoolAfrica initiative. This initiative is not only impacting the lives of the students by helping them find their passion but also teachers in under-resourced, rural & township schools. Can't wait to see what these kids do one day!
