Students receive technology boost at Baldivis Primary School.

Students at Baldivis Primary School have started the year with a much needed boost, thanks to local developer Australand.

After upgrading its internal computer systems, the company donated twelve spare computers to the school.

Australand Development Director Justin Crooks said he was glad to support the school and hoped the donation would help students expand their learning platforms. 

 “We are committed to supporting the local Baldivis community in a meaningful way and hope to have a positive impact in the areas in which we are developing,” Mr Crooks said.

Baldivis Primary School Principal Ron Ross said the donation was a great start to the new year.

“Many of our learning programs use information technology as a fundamental tool in the communication process, not just for our students but our teachers and parents as well,” Mr Ross said.

“We live in a digital age and children are very visual learners. Teaching children how to use computers and learn online is very important in activating critical thinking pathways and helps encourage independent learning.

“Australand has provided great support over the past twelve months and we are all grateful for this donation. The fact Australand regularly provide grass roots support to our school demonstrates a meaningful connection to our community”.

Australand’s newest residential estate is Baldivis Parks, which has been designed with lifestyle in mind with residential lots just walking distance from a park.
