Two Atlantis schools have received state of the art computer equipment from the Republic of Korea.

Robinvale and Witsand primary schools received the equipment on 21 September, thanks to the Korean ambassador Chull-Joo Park.

Witsand principal Gerhard Matthyse thanked Park, and said the initiative started after the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) met with them. 

“A few months later we as school principals had a  meeting with the Republic of Korea ambassador and it materialized when they informed us that they would invest in the two schools,” said Matthyse.

Robinvale principal Vaughan Murray also expressed his appreciation for the donation of equipment to be used by the learners.

“We choose Atlantis to promote trade and investments and also want to help to improve the conditions of the people of Atlantis,” said Park.

“With this investment, I hope the school and parents will play a supportive role to the children,” he said.

He said the Republic of Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world in the 1950s, but through investing in a good education system, it has transformed into a global economic success. 

He said the investing in education was the best thing to develop the Atlantis community.
