DHS Pioneers in 21st Century Education
Durban High School (DHS) are raising the bar once again as they are the first public school in the province to benefit from a world-class, cutting-edge, Online Mind Activation Solution: LAB-on-line.
LAB-on-line is developed by Lectorsa, one of the leading research and development companies internationally. To date, LAB has assisted more than 70 000 users globally to maximise and improve their skills and to thrive in an ever-changing world.
After an intriguing Student Orientation and Implementation on Tuesday (25 July) presented by Solutions Adviser at Lectorsa, Daleen Janse van Rensburg, the Grade 8 learners of DHS are set and ready to maximise their abilities.
These learners were especially motivated upon hearing the encouraging news that if they implement LAB-on-line accurately they can improve their academic average by up to 10%.
As noted by the Head Master of DHS, Mr A D Pinheiro: “Education finds itself going through significant change at this time in history and the learning environment will be greatly transformed over the next decade. It is imperative that DHS determines its own destiny by directing this change rather than following others. We have a vision and the capability to be a leading multi-nodal educational hub … a place where every boy is engaged and has a space to discover his innate talent and to develop it so that ultimately he can lead a life of significance.”
LAB-on-line is going to be integrated into the Grade 8 learner’s English timetable and is aimed at preparing them for the challenges of work, life and citizenship in a world where change is constant and learning never stops, so that they can indeed lead a life of significance.
Directors of Lectorsa, Thomas and Minda Marshall said: “Today we live in a technology and media-suffused environment with access to an abundance of information and our expectations for students and also in the workplace have increased dramatically thus we applaud DHS for equipping their students with the necessary ‘tools’ to excel in the 21st century and beyond.”
The Marshalls further said they are excited to join forces with DHS in building a desirable future through better education.
