St John Fisher School Celebrates Edtech Success
St John Fisher School in Tumbi Umbi has beat off competition from Trans-Tasman schools to become one of the 17 successful winners of the Promethean Grant 2018. With entries from both Australia and New Zealand, St John Fisher School impressed the panel of judges and won a state-of-the-art education technology package worth $5,000 AUD.
In their video entry, the St John Fisher School children rapped about how useful a brand new interactive Panel would be in music lessons. Lynda Burke, Music Teacher at St John Fisher School said: “It’s unusual to have a dedicated music classroom in a primary school and although music has been very well supported here at St John Fisher, having access to the latest interactive technology was beyond our budget priorities.
“Having an ActivPanel in the room will enhance engagement and enable much more interactivity within our music lessons. I cannot wait to play with our new toy!”
