Trentham iPad mini Scheme
Information Evening – Thursday, 10 October at 6.30 p.m. in the School Hall
We have made some changes to the iPad scheme that was run last year to make it easier for both parents/carers and the school to administer. In addition, we will be running the scheme using iPad mini devices which are easier for students to carry with them enabling anywhere, anytime learning.
Our vision is that all Year 7 students and the majority of Year 8, in the first instance, will be able to use an iPad mini to support their learning. We would like to invite all parents/carers of students in Year 7 and 8 who do not currently have an iPad or iPad mini, to an information evening on Thursday, 10 October at 6.30 p.m. At this meeting you will be able to see a sample iPad mini and accessories and price comparisons with buying through the school or independently, details of warranty and insurance and ways to opt into the scheme.
All Year 7 students will receive their devices on 7 November, with Year 8 during the week beginning 25 November (the exact day is yet to be confirmed). On the 7th and 8th November, Year 7 will also receive training using 3 of the apps which will come as part of the package via an exciting project.
We look forward to seeing you at the event.
