Mr. Gabby, HOD Computer Department, sees a very bright future for students undertaking Information Technology as a career. All the teachers from primary to high school are computer literate and the department is also responsible for continuous professional development of the teachers to keep them abreast with changing technology. After all we at JPI believe in the street township street lingo…“Walala Wasala” translated “you snooze, you loose!”
