During the visit to the school in July, when the overseas Chinese community handed the learners with warm blankets and school bags, Zuma and the Chinese Embassy also made a commitment to equip the school with computers.

The use of ICTs in education is increasingly becoming an important medium for complementing the delivery of the curriculum in most developing countries. SA Department of Basic Education takes e-Education as a priority issue, which is well reflected through the Action Plan to 2014: Towards the Realisation of Schooling 2025.

Zuma appreciated the friendship with China. He encouraged the learners to
make full use of the excellent learning equipment and contribute their own share to the development of South Africa and to South Africa-China friendship.

As Tian Xuejun said, the Chinese Embassy will continue to promote educational cooperation and exchanges and contribute to the mutual benefits and common development of both South Africa and China.“I firmly believe that our cooperation will sow the seeds of friendship in the many young hearts and minds of our two countries to carry forward our great relations into the future.” He said.
