The Kid’s Educational Engagement Project (KEEP), Du-Port Road community, on Saturday graduated 22 children with computer skills at the compound of the Young Women Christian Association; writes Silver-tongue Kangar, Jr.

   The children’s computer program, which was a three-month initiative, recruited 43 students, but due to unfavorable condition several of them dropped along the way, with only 22 completing the course, according to the school’s report.

   To prove their academic achievement to parents, school staffers, visitors and journalists, the graduating students made a projector presentation each on various topics they have learned.

   Some of the topics discussed by the graduates were file creation, changing of desktop background, the use of Microsoft Word, Excel, table creation, and so on.

   As the students showcased their computer skills during the projector presentations, parents, teachers and other members of the audience gave them a clapping ovation.

   Two parents, Grace M. Lloyd and Markonee Y. Knightley, in separate remarks, thanked the school and teachers for impacting computer knowledge in their children.

   “We will tell other parents to attend the computer school and the reading classes. Our children are telling us that Word is for documents and Excel is for spreadsheet and calculation,” both parents said separately during special remarks.

   According to one of KEEP’s staffers, Moses N. Buwee, the computer school and reading program are free of charge, and called on parents to make maximum use of both. “The organization has 30 reading rooms in 10 counties. Bring your children to read,” Buwee said.

   KEEP is a local not-for-profit organization that works at the grassroots level in four counties: Grand Gedeh, Rivercess, Gbarpolu and Montserrado, and focuses on providing support to the education sector, particularly at the primary level.

   The group used the graduation ceremony to announce the reopening of the school and encouraged parents to make use the computer and reading programs, with emphasis on the reading program, observing that education is reading and writing.
