iPads to be used for Literacy, maths and funny photos

FREESTONE State School students had 10 reasons to smile yesterday, as they received their new iPads as winners of the Win an iPad competition.

"Mum has one but I'm not allowed to touch it," year 5 student Madison Kane said as she unwrapped one of the 10 iPads.

"Now everyone can do something at once, and we don't have to write when we use them," student Kayleigh Waugh laughed.

The class said they looked forward to using the iPads for literacy, mathematics and a few funny photos.

"I think it's just wonderful that such a small school had an opportunity to enter something like this," years 4-7 teacher Laura Watson said. "I never envisaged we would have the chance," she said.

The school however worked extremely hard to collect the tokens with daily tallies.

"The kids got right into it, every single parent brought in coupons," she said.
