Intranet facility for all locations of a school greatly enhances the utilisation of existing resources, enables interactive student activity and improves the utilisation of time by the staff. Sharing of resources implies an exchange of information, to achieve or to improve the present teaching and learning environment, which also fosters an ethos of widening participation, teamwork, human development and above all, progression in learning. Intranet facilitates this sharing culture
