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.

A Crown Loan helped Rotorua Girls High School install energy efficient lighting in their gymnasium (Arena). As a result, the school now save $2,500 per year in energy costs.

The energy efficient technology installed also provides longer lamp life and less maintenance, resulting in additional savings as accessing light fittings in the high ceiling gymnasium is a costly exercise.
