[Schoolza] Monthly Posting: Schools With E-Mail

This is a monthly posting to the schoolza distribution list.

Although every attempt is made to keep the list of schools up to date, I rely on schools to let me know when they begin to use email on the internet. Please mail me if you know of any schools that are connected to the internet that are not yet on this list.

The list of schools is maintained by Tim Bouwer, Rhodes University Computing Services and changes or additions can be mailed to me at

The OFS Ed Dept are busy creating a WAN, called FRENET for obvious reasons, to connect as many schools as possible. Because most of our schools are "Model-C" and will have to pay for their own leased lines, we couldn't force them to take part. However, by having roadshows and selling all the advantages of being on a network, all the schools (except two small farm schools) have decided to take part. We hope to have about 177 schools on the network by the end of July. We have also obtained a B-lisence for Internet. The address of a teacher at these schools will be something like My own email address will change to

An update from Hercules - the first schools should be testing within a week of the end of August. We should hear from the OFS soon.

Schoolza is a "majordomo" mailserver maintained by Rhodes University. The schoolza list is intended for people involved in, or interested in schooling and schools in South Africa. (Please note that schoolza has been moved from to enable a clean gateway between the listserver schoolza and the usenet newsgroup za.schools).

This listserver is now gated to the usenet newsgroup za.schools Since many of the schools that are connected only have email capabilities, it is where most of them make contact with one another.

The procedure to subscribe is:

Send a mail message to:

The body of the message must contain only the following line:

subscribe schoolza

To unsubscribe send a message to the same address with the following line:

unsubscribe schoolza
