Students set to tackle technology thanks to SunWater computer donation

15 May 2009

The donation of a dozen computers has helped to ensure Bundaberg Special School students are ready to tackle technology.

Delivered by SunWater Bundaberg this week, the computer donation means students will now have access to a fully stocked computer room.

Bundaberg Special School’s Principal Tracey Chappell said using computers was an effective way of engaging students with intellectual disabilities and the donated computers would become an important educational tool that would ensure students reached their full potential.

“We have to use a variety of different methods to draw out the abilities of our students and these computers will be very useful in achieving that goal,’ Ms Chappell said.

“They can be set up to suit different disabilities with purpose built switches and modified keyboards, which means all our students can benefit from their use,” she said. 

SunWater Bundaberg Manager Danny Green said he was pleased SunWater could assist the school in its education program and was sure the computers would be put to good use.

“These computers became available following a recent upgrade to our Bundaberg office’s IT capabilities,” Mr Green said.

“The Bundaberg Special School is doing great things with some of our more special students and I am very pleased SunWater could offer some assistance with the work they are doing,” he said.
