XV Focal point of light

While the computer room is planned

  Start thinking of its use

Needs of the learners must be scanned

  The right objectives choose


The focus is to educate

  The learners in the class

The purpose to facilitate

  A higher rate of pass


Another goal is to retain

  The kids till their twelfth year

I T must back up a campaign

  Stop them to disappear


Coordinators must discuss

  With principals and staff

Which subject will be a great plus

  On all learners’ behalf


The weak spots of the school select

  By learning needs inspired

A matching subject then elect

  The special one required


Sometimes it is Geography

  Or maybe History

But it could be Accountancy

  Perhaps Biology


Some learners are of Science shy

  And may of it steer clear

Put forth the best effort and try

  To rid them of this fear


Some language skills the learners need

  They must communicate

If they can speak and write and read

  Their prospects will be great


Maths is the one that tops the list

  Most teachers have resigned

So few of them the urge resist

  A better life to find


This subject is most critical

  More passes are desired

For most careers – not optional –

  Much help is here required


Help learners all the tools to learn

  Equip them with more skills

If they succeed the tide will turn

  Get rid of teaching ills


In prim’ry schools one often looks

  At better lit’racy

To cultivate a love for books

  And fight illit’racy


Or since the little ones can’t count

  Attend to num’racy

Divide or add any amount

  Enhance efficiency


And so choose only what is best

   Firm up the weakest link

Computers used with a full zest

  Will change things in a wink


The principle to follow through

  – This is a truth sublime –

Don’t bite off more than you can chew

  Take one step at a time


First master just one learning field

  Until you’re sure you’ve won

When this approach its fruit does yield

  Expand then further on


Into the plan put this approach

  – Thus make it clear to all –

Preventing others to encroach

  And throw you a curve ball


This focus one must first select

  The next is to decide

How this the hardware will affect

  That one must now provide
