South Waikato News - - NEWS -

Whaka­maru School is ben­e­fit­ing from the Trans­power Com­mu­ni­ty­Care Fund af­ter be­ing se­lected for a $25,000 grant.

Prin­ci­pal Jill McArthur ap­pre­ci­ates re­ceiv­ing the full amount they sought.

‘‘ We ap­plied for a grant with Trans­power be­cause they do­nate to the com­mu­ni­ties af­fected by trans­mis­sions lines.’’

Ms McArthur was no­ti­fied two weeks ago af­ter ap­ply­ing for the grant in June.

The $25,000 from Trans­power will be used to buy four in­ter­ac­tive white­boards, so each class will have one in it.

Ms McArthur also said her school was about to re­ceive ul­tra-fast broad­band.

‘‘It is a Min­istry (of Ed­u­ca­tion). So some schools aren’t get­ting that for an­other one to two years and we are get­ting it within the next six months.’’
