Computer equipment upgrade at the Beit Jala Latin Patriarchate School Available in the following languages:

BEIT JALA – For three months, the computer laboratory of the Latin Patriarchate School in Beit Jala benefitted, for educational purposes, from a total rehabilitation of its computer equipment. The LPJ schools’ administration in Israel and Palestine and the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem established this project so that students receive better access to information and a better quality of work in the classroom.

“The mission of the school is to develop the sense of truth, goodness, and beauty. And this happens through a rich journey composed of many ingredients.”

(H.H. Pope Benedict XVI)

The Latin Patriarchate School was the first school founded in the city of Beit Jala in 1854. Until 1994, the school was dedicated only to primary level education before serving as a secondary school with all levels of education: English, French, physics laboratory, chemistry, biology, religious activities, and physical training workouts.

The world is constantly changing and our ways of working at home, at work and at school are changing as well. The speed at which technology has developed plays a major role in these changes. Technology is very significant in education in the 21st century; it has a huge influence on our lives and can improve the learning process at school in a variety of ways. With the growing popularity of Internet technology, it is essential that the schools of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem support and encourage it in its education systems.

The school benefited from four small wall-mounted cabinets, four Wi-Fi routers, six interactive projectors, and six new HP computers.

Computer technologies and interactive projectors in schools offer students an eager motivation to learn and to excel because they have the chance to study in good conditions. Teachers will also benefit from the acquisition of these new materials that will have the opportunity to create a more dynamic learning environment for students while facilitating the teaching process.

The works were managed and supervised by the engineering and procurement staff of the Latin Patriarchate. The upgrade of the various computer equipment could not have been possible without the help and support of the Knights of the Order of the Holy Sepulcher who financed the project’s varied equipment.
