TOI Grant 2023

Last year we were very fortunate to receive $25,000 from the Toi Foundation to spend on ICT.

We used this funding alongside funding from our Board of Trustees to purchase lots of additional chromebooks and iPads for our ākonga.

With more devices available in every classroom, teachers and students are empowered to recognize them as powerful tools for accessing and producing learning, rather than just for gaming or internet searches.

The devices provide access to a wide range of learning applications and functions and we are able to make use of a number of applications to support foundation skills in literacy and numeracy that can be accessed from home as well as in class.

As students can now access their learning independently in any environment, students are able to teach parents how to use learning apps, too. Senior students now have access to their learning goals and access to track these themselves.

We believe that by having an adequate number of devices in all classes, we can support tamariki (and their whānau) to understand the powerful tools that are available to them and how to get the most out of them, at school, at home and into the future.

Thank you Toi Foundation!
