Laptops for senior school students
Monday, 29 January 2018
Every year 10 public school student across South Australia will receive a government funded laptop under an investment to prepare students for their future careers.
Students will take the laptops home to assist with homework, and will keep the devices after graduating – setting them up to commence further studies and join the workforce.
Around $70 million will be invested over five years under the Laptops for Students program with all year 10, 11 and 12 public school students to have personal laptops by 2021.
Plympton International College will trial the program before it is rolled-out to a number of schools in the second term of 2018 and finally all year 10 public school students in 2019.
The program comes after the State Government announced upgraded broadband speeds for all public schools and preschools across South Australia.
