A huge thank you to Telstra from St Andrew’s Catholic Primary school in Ferny Grove. The funds received from Telstra Kids were put towards iPads for Year 6 students.
The students at St Andrew’s Primary School, Ferny Grove participate in a school parliament. As a party member for their group they put forward bills, to the Governor General (Principal), that are designed to support the community members within the school and their bills must be passed before actions can be taken. Their role is to listen to the needs of their peers and represent the student voice!
The iPads purchased with the Telstra Kids Grant has enabled the young politicians to advertise their bills to the students by creating posters and electronic notices for upcoming events. They also use the iPad to capture the photos of the event and they then use these images to prepare their evaluation report to take back to a parliament sitting.
The Paper Plane Battle for the Year 4 community has been the most recent event which was a huge success!
