Promethean has awarded over $50,000 worth of their ActivPanels to 11 ANZ schools.
To win the Promethean Grant, schools were asked to submit creative entries as to why they deserved to receive a Promethean ActivPanel, the front-of-classroom interactive screen.
The Promethean Grant competition ran from 26 July to 8 October 2017, and in total had over 75 entries. The 11 winners were notified on 31 October and each have recently received a fully installed ActivPanel package.
The schools were creative in their submissions, with one of the most stand-out entries coming from Mount Ousley Public School in Fairy Meadow, New South Wales.
Peter Holmes, Head Teacher at Mount Ousley Public School said: "Winning an ActivPanel is a huge deal for our students – it's affirmation from an international company that their work at school matters; that they matter! It's no longer just us telling them how brilliant they are. Having their work and talents acknowledged is inspirational and something to be celebrated.
"We're really enjoying using the ActivPanel. It’s exciting knowing that this technology allows us to mirror our students' individual devices and helps them to think and present in ways that they haven't previously been able to do."
