Piketberg High School (PHS) has been identified as one of many schools in S.A today, who are in need of better access to Education.

Our Team at Trusc has made it highest priority to connect teachers and learners in the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic.

We are honored to be joining the PHS team, where virtues like Pride, Unity, and Respect are the foundation of the school.

It is upon these pillars that we hope to build the new relationship between Piketberg High and our team at Trusc.

The extraordinary challenge that teachers and learners have been faced with, is something that Trusc and PHS wanted to tackle together. After all, unity and teamwork is always a winning recipe!

Together, we decided that a better internet connection for the school was the most effective first step in addressing the issue of access to information, communication and subsequently, education.

How will this work?:

PHS will be provided with a 50mb/s unlimited (uncapped) Internet connection with no restrictions, free of charge.

Secondly, our friends at PC Tech in Piketberg will optimize the network within the school to make the most of the connection.

Trusc and Piketberg High School are aligned in their drive to better support learners in every possible way. The Internet connection will also help learners and teachers interact with each other without risking their health and safety in terms of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The connection will allow teachers to provide learners with learning material remotely. This will support and promote homeschooling and ensure that the education of future generations will not suffer under the backlash of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In this way, learners and teachers will be able to communicate with each other more efficiently, as well as open up a whole new scope of access to information to all involved!

This will ensure that learners maintain the best level of education during the difficult times they are currently experiencing, as well as into the future!

Trusc and PHS will continue to support each other, learners, and the Piketberg community as a whole!
