The resources available to them include 40 computers, the Internet, a scanner, and Microsoft programmes such as Encarta Encyclopaedia and PowerPoint. Computer Centre Assistants are appointed to train and help learners.

The Computer Centre isn’t all about work, however, as many girls spend their leisure time playing games and surfing the Internet for fun. Learners enjoy spending time in the Computer Centre as they get to use a wide range of programmes. The centre is supervised to ensure that the girls use the Internet safely and responsibly.
