Computers for Teachers gets Wavell Heights moving again
Wavell Heights State School is back online thanks to quick actions by the Computers for Teachers team.
Just days after hearing about the April fire that devastated Wavell Heights State High School, school teaching staff had essential computer equipment replaced.
Wavell Heights principal John Cattoni said the Computers for Teachers team was able to replace a total of eight laptops that were destroyed or left inaccessible by the fire.
'We were delighted at the quick response from the team at head office and the prompt replacement of our teacher and principal laptops.' 'It is really important for us to get things back on track as soon as possible.'
The fire, which ripped through the school in the early hours of 27 April, damaged an entire wing of the school, closing the school for two days. Four modular buildings were then moved onsite to enable normal school activities to resume.
Computers for Teachers manager Karen Edwards said her staff had personally made two deliveries of laptops to Wavell Heights State School teachers in need of replacements.
'The principal's office was one of those inaccessible, so it was important to get Mr Cattoni back online as soon as possible."
'His machine is 3G enabled, so with a replacement laptop he was able to be connected and continue working even when his office was out of action.'
