Low cost tablet PCs for Rotorua pupils
A Rotorua school will be providing each of its students with a tablet computer device at minimal cost to parents.
Auckland's Orewa College is making iPads, laptops or their equivalent part of the compulsory stationery list for its Year 9 students from next year.
That move provoked a backlash from parents and others in the community who said it would place even more financial strain on already struggling families.
However, Rotorua's Kaitao Middle School is aiming to provide each of its 500 pupils with a tablet as the school moves its focus to e-learning.

From our first month taking part in Torque IP's EMAS programme, we were able to make savings, and student response was very positive. We all enjoyed the fact that we were working together to create a more energy efficient atmosphere at RGHS. Monthly outcomes were also proving to be financially positive for the school, which became another beneficial factor.
At TorqueIP we really appreciate you making contact with us.
