Eyeland Eyewear gives 10 new computers to Ardenne High School
CEO of Eyeland Eyewear Foundation Ketao Akwanza expressed gratitude to his alma mater, Ardenne High School, by donating 10 new, fully loaded computers to the IT lab, complete with 17" flat-screen monitors.
The computers arrived in the nick of time, as the students are preparing themselves for exams. Vice-Principal Ms Jacqueline Pinto, who was on hand to receive the computers, was most joyous. These units will surely help to fill the quota of much-needed computers as the school recently sought to outfit the IT lab with new units on somewhat meager resources.
The computers were unloaded from the Eyeland Eyewear Mobile Optical by the students and within an hour were installed to be ready for the IT exams the following day.
As a graduate of the Class of 2000, Akwanza reflects, "I was very grateful for the computers in the IT lab back in my days .... computer technology opened up all the potential the world had to offer. Lab time was definitely something to look forward to since, like most students at that time, I had no computer at home till much later!"
Akwanza fondly remembers Mrs Bromfield, now head of Ardenne's IT department, as a "strict but very understanding teacher".
When asked about the success of Eyeland Eyewear, which comprises six branches and a mobile optical unit, Akwanza says family, ambition, maintaining a level head and a constant focus on the customer's point of view have helped greatly.
Through this and other recent efforts, the Eyeland Eyewear team is firmly planting the seeds for whatwill be an official launch of the Eyeland Eyewear Foundation.
