Schools in IT top-up

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Streetwatch -

COTTES­LOE MP Colin Bar­nett has an­nounced seven pri­mary schools in his elec­torate will get new com­put­ers and soft­ware from the State Govern­ment’s $20 mil­lion Pri­mary De­vice Pro­gram.

“IT de­vices are pow­er­ful tools for help­ing stu­dents im­prove lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy skills, when used in a bal­anced ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram,” Mr Bar­nett said.

Cottes­loe, Fresh­wa­ter Bay, Mos­man Park, Mount Clare­mont, North Cottes­loe, North Fre­man­tle and Swan­bourne pri­mary schools will get iPads, desk­top com­put­ers and ac­ces­sories in­clud­ing charg­ing sta­tions, trol­leys, power boards and mon­i­tors.

The Govern­ment’s pro­gram matches each dol­lar raised by schools to buy com­put­ers and dig­i­tal equip­ment.
