Homeward Bound Netbooks

Finally the moment has come at St Pius X for the students to take home their netbooks.  

Tonight was the night where an extremely large amount of parents gathered with their children to take home their netbooks.

The Principal (Paul Coakley) went through the TLN (Tamaki Learning Network) zoning so that the parents understood that this is a 3 stage project, where stage one is complete.  This meant that some students at the moment would not be able to link into the TLN wireless just yet, but it is coming.  

The parents took away with them a Home Agreement, which they signed before taking away their netbooks.  This agreement also had information about the Kawa of Care and the expectations the school had for the netbooks.

Maniakalani is all about - 'Any time, Any place, Anywhere' and we are finally making this an even more realistic vision.

It will be wonderful to see all the learning that the students will be able to do with their netbook at home as well as at school.
