More than 400 local students at Springlands School will benefit from the latest round of network upgrades to prepare schools for ultra-fast broadband, says local MP Colin King.
“Broadband is essential for modern schools. It’s great to see National investing in front-line services for the classroom,” Mr King says.
The school is one of 239 across the country sharing the $37.5 million upgrade, which is part of the Government’s $1.5 billion Broadband Investment Initiative.
“Ultra-fast broadband will enable schools to enhance their teaching and learning programmes, and bring education into the 21st century.”
“The learning opportunities provided by broadband will help our young people reach their potential,” Mr King says.
“National is working hard to make our education system one of the most connected in the world.”
