Prime Minister Evelyn Wever-Croes, Minister of Education dr. Armando Lampe, SKOA Director, Mrs. Baly, Chief Innovation Officer Varelie Croes and Pancho Croes of FUTURA, visited the school to share the great news in person.
The innovation project started last year as a pilot project by the Minister of Education, dr. Armando Lampe, with as objective to introduce century 21 skills in the earlier classes of primary schools. This project includes the digitalization of Cacique Macuarima and elementary School Aterima.
The Prime Minister announced that the Colegio Pastoor Kranwinkel will also be digitalized, based on the success of the project so far and since 2020 is also proclaimed as the Innovation Year. The objective of this project is to have every single school digitalized and to completely innovate education in Aruba.
The principal of the Colegio Pastoor Kranwinkel, Mrs. Angeline Leung, expressed joy that her school was selected as the next school for the E-learning project.
This will make teaching more pleasant for both teachers and students. She also expressed gratitude to the Government of Aruba, SKOA, and FUTURA for their decision to make Colegio Pastor Kranwinkel the next E-learning project.
