General manager of GO! School group Xpert, Anne Smeyers, kicked off the new school year today with the handing over of the first laptops to the students of X plus in Lommel.

GO! School group Xpert provides a laptop for all teachers and students from the fifth year of primary education up to and including full secondary education. In total, more than 2300 copies are distributed within the GO! School group in North Limburg.

Anne Smeyers: “The ‘Laptop at school and at home’ project contributes to the government’s task to train our students in a rapidly changing but fascinating society to become digitally competent and critical young people. After all, good digital skills are indispensable in further studies, in the labor market and in everyday life. Integration of ICT in education is becoming increasingly important in curricula. Using a laptop in the lessons is therefore a logical step.”

All education professionals from GO! School group Xpert received a laptop in recent days. Those who so wish can make use of an intensive refresher course within the school group. 600 education professionals will be provided with their own laptop. In addition, the school group provides more than 500 laptops for primary school students from the fifth grade. And finally, about 1200 secondary school students receive a laptop that they use at school and can also take home, even during the holiday periods.

The Bird’s Nest in Heukelom – the new school year started without any problems. After 9 weeks of summer vacation, teacher Nicole Geurts (59) welcomed her 12 toddlers at the school gate with open arms. It was a happy reunion for everyone.

Nicole had transformed her classroom into a veritable jungle in recent weeks. The ticket machines she chose was therefore ‘Take your binoculars and go on the road, you always experience something in our jungle!’ In the class Nicole had built a monkey tree, a tiger tree and a panda tree in combination with lianas and various jungle animals. On the small playground, the little ones were welcomed by an elephant, crocodile and other play animals. The 12 toddlers not only come from the immediate vicinity but also from Riemst center, Herderen and Lowie (4) even come from Maastricht. “It’s a good school and grandma lives close by, which is easy for the shelter,” his parents testify.

The Bird’s Nest Heukelom depends on the Catholic Education Deanate Vlijtingen with its main school in Vlijtingen. Hilde Muermans is the brand new director there. Miss Nicole has been in Heukelom for almost 30 years and is currently the only teacher there. A few half days of school a week, she receives help from the teachers Françoise and Elise. “It’s a nice little school in a safe environment,” says Nicole, who is happy and satisfied that works will be carried out in the street this year, including a significant widening of the sidewalks.

“We are not only the smallest, but certainly also the nicest school in Limburg” concludes an enthusiastic teacher Nicole.

Minister of the Interior Annelies Verlinden (CD&V) started the school year at the school gate of the Municipal Primary School in Rapertingen-Hasselt.

“I come to Limburg because this province takes the lead when it comes to safety in school neighbourhoods,” says Minister Verlinden, who went to a zebra crossing with the LRH officers. “In school neighbourhoods, work is being done on conflict-free intersections and safe bicycle paths. But wearing seat belts and fluorescent vests is also given extra attention. And what I think is really progressive are the traffic lessons that young people receive when they receive a parking permit, for example when their bicycles are not working. are in order. Those 4 hours of traffic lessons are much more efficient than a fine that is paid out of the pockets of the parents. I certainly want to extend this initiative to the rest of the country.”
