Milestones & achievements


Assistive technology worked wonders

December 2005 saw the successful graduation of two senior blind students, Phandle Phandle and Siphiwe Mashawu.

Assistive technology was invaluable in facilitating their academic success.

The range of services offered to students with disabilities was enhanced in 2006 by the addition of an electronic desktop magnifier to assist visually impaired students. We also acquired a five-licence version of special scanning software to afford blind and visually impaired users full access to scanning facilities in our Student Computer Lab. A standing desk/podium and a bed were purchased to assist students with serious back injuries, or those who are unable to write tests and exams sitting up for long periods of time.
