Greetings Everybody

Thank you for creating this Forum.
My name is Vikash Maharaj and I am an educator at a school in Durban , KZN . Blush
I assist my school with Sasams and do most of the IT work at school.
I often help many educators from neighboring schools with sasams.

I do believe that Sasams is essential for the day 2 day running of the school.
All the information and statistics are available easily.

I am certain that this forum will prove to be very useful in resolving problems and having support.

Thank you.
