The other day I visited the Convent school attached to the local catholic church.

It is a primary school, private, that takes both sexes and all colors .. and it has a computer education. They have a network of about a dozen Windows computers, networked, where the kids learn to type, draw, and program, using Logo. Logo is a kids’ programming language, where you ask a turtle to put a pen down and walk around, drawing things.

In short, Bobbie (the teacher) is doing an absolutely tremendous job. I was commiserating with the System administrator at Zululand University, that most of the courses there seem to be vocational training (the scissors mean ‘cut’) as opposed to research or programming. I am glad to see that they are being taught to program at least at the primary school level ..

Cheers, Andy!
