Newlands School gets grants for Chromebooks
Pub Charity has granted Newlands School $10,050 to buy Chromebooks.
Infinity Foundation Limited has granted Newlands School $4000 to buy Chromebooks.
Pelorus Trust has granted Newlands School $8000 to buy Chromebooks.
The Trusts Community Foundation has granted Newlands School $9870 to buy Chromebooks.
The purchase of 60 Chromebooks is the first part of a four-year plan to get all 360 students using Chromebooks. A further 60 Chromebooks will be purchased early in Term 2.
We are extremely grateful for the support of these grant organisations as our existing PCs are old, need to be replaced with many already beyond repair. This grant allows us to kick start our upgrade.
Senior students (year 5/6) would have priority access to the technology as we build supply. This approach will help better prepare our students for intermediate and college, where e-learning is embedded in everything.
Chromebooks give students and teachers a simple solution for fast, intuitive, and easy-to-manage computing. Hardware, updates and complete support for Chromebooks is provided by Google, making access to technology very affordable.
