Good bye books, hello NETBOOKS!

Finally it's arrived. Pt England School now has this great opportunity to use these brand new devices. Instead of using books we now use NET BOOKS! The amazing thing about this is we get to keep them and take them home. And it gets even better.

If your year eight and you go to Tamaki College next year you keep the same netbook until you are year 10 and the next three years we get better netbooks, but for the year seven's you keep them until we're year nine.

Everyday there's something new to experience in our netbooks. The only side affect about them is that the network goes off and on.

So far this year we have had a tremendous time with our netbooks, we can't wait to take our net books home. We would like to say a big thank you to our principal, Mr Burt, and to everyone who made this possible.
