New technology for students

LIONS Club of Maleny-Blackall Range members were pleased to be invited to the Conondale State School to view the new interactive teaching screens purchased by the school with money donated by the club.

The $12,000 donation purchased three screens to equip the school with the latest in modern teaching aids.

School principal Scott Willis thanked the Lions for their wonderful and kind donation to enable the school to get interactive televisions in every classroom including the library and computer lab.

“It is fantastic to have such a strong working relationship with Maleny Blackall Range Lions Club and we appreciate all of the support they have given our school,” he said.

It was gratifying for the Lions members present to hear school principal Scott Willis say how well both staff and pupils had adapted to using the modern interactive teaching techniques.

On the day, the school’s Lions member Diane Hobson also presented certificates to students who competed in junior public speaking competition Convince Us.

To complete the day, Lions ran a sausage sizzle for students and staff. Luckily everyone was able to enjoy the afternoon with minimum disruptions from storms.
