Corazon Creek High School Needs Access to Internet

Corazon Creek Technical High School opened its door in 2009 and caters to just over three hundred plus students from remote villages in Toledo District, including Machakil Ha, San Benito Poite and Graham Creek. Most recently, secondary school students from Midway, Barranco and Santana have been added to the zone. While the institution has been offering quality education to its students, it has all been by paper. During the pandemic, the school was unable to have online classes. It has a computer lab and is in possession of tablets to allow for virtual learning, but there is no internet. It is something that Principal Macario Coy and the staff at the institution have been battling. News Five spoke to Coy, who he says it is a work in progress.

“Internet, telephone service is a setback for our school. I would say it is a work in progress. We know that the Ministry of Education is working to ensure that internet be reaching out to our school very soon. We want to thank our minister of education that is doing as much as he can do. I am sure that it is not only Corazon that needs access to internet. I am sure that there are other schools that need it in the area. It wasn’t easy for us at Corazon. What we did was a paper-based packages to our students. We used to do it every week; we changed it to every two weeks. And I’m sure that like in other schools they still have issues even though they were doing it online while we were doing packages. But the objective was to ensure that learning occurs while we were going through the pandemic and it did occur.”

“Do you guys have the equipment though to do online learning?”

“Well if you can see right behind me, there are a number of tablets out there and we have a computer lab that have about thirty-three plus desktops that can be used. As long as we have access to the internet that would be possible. Our main goal right now is to have access to internet. Once we have access to internet, we believe that our school would be like any other schools like in the city.”
