Booborowie Primary School has won an iPad Mini to assist with their classroom learning.
It was through a Good Guys competition that the school won the prize.
BPS principal Jayne Mainprize-Potter said she and another SSO at the school had seen the competition on Facebook and both decided to nominate the school for a prize.
Part of the prize was answering what the Good Guys could help with and what was needed.
Mrs Mainprize-Potter said she had nominated the school’s SSO, Mel Walker, to receive an iPad to help with her job.
“Neither of us knew we were doing it,” Mrs Mainprize-Potter said.
“We got a call to say we were going to receive it, the whole school went to collect the iPad Mini.”
So, they did, the whole school visited the Good guys’ Gepps Cross store at the completion of their school camp to claim the prize.
It was part of the Good Guys Doing It Good campaign and competition.
Mrs Mainprize-Potter said it was worth a go, entering the competition.
The addition of this iPad Mini would mean the school – which has 16 students – now had access to another iPad.
Previously, they had two iPads and this would allow them to use another with learning, in particular it would be used as part of the STEM project.
With limited resources, the addition has been welcomed.
It has already been used by the junior primary students for coding and Mrs Mainprize-Potter said the school had booked one of its teachers in to do a course on ways to use the iPad.
