XXI The first shimmers of light

The meaning of facilitate

  Is simply to assist

So those who are in needy state

  On such aid can subsist


Facilitators are first trained

  – Ex teachers they must be –

Sound subject knowledge they have gained

  Their insight is the key


In the school system – must have been –

  At least a year or nine

The horrors of the playground seen

  Know how teachers incline


Good P C knowledge they’ve acquired

  Some solid I T skills

They must have eagerly desired

  To solve the teaching ills


For them Khanya seeks high and low

  They bear the project’s brunt

Through adverts there’s a steady flow

  At times a smart head hunt


They’ll visit schools – sufficiently –

  To train the teaching staff

Use I T most efficiently

  In measures never half


In this respect others have flopped

  For teachers no support

This help role they did not adopt

  Their projects did abort


The use of these ones who assist

  Khanya will not refuse

In fact – will more of them enlist –

  Will never change its views


When hardware is installed in schools

  There is no time to waste

The window left to use these tools

  Is shrinking with great haste


The moment hardware does arrive

  A guarantee kicks in

Use this time well – for this must strive –

  To lose it – what a sin


It is a most important thing

  There’s not a day to lose

The learners one must quickly bring

  The lab – they all must use


A project plan is put in place

  It’s an essential phase

Built on a solidly laid base

  The bar one now must raise


This is indeed the second plan

  The first has run its course

The new plan shows schools how they can

  Use each I T resource
