New iPads light up happy little faces
"DO YOU guys know what you're doing with these things," The Daily Examiner photographer Adam Hourigan asked the students of Nymboida Public School as they grabbed an iPad each.
"Yep," chorused the kids, heads down, creating a self-portrait masterpiece.
The school's new machines came courtesy of The Daily Examiner through a promotion to win 10 new iPads by collecting coupons from the paper.
Principal Michelle Dalgliesh said the students had been really keen to get hold of them.
"The kids worked really hard to collect the coupons together, so they were just ecstatic when they heard about their win," she said.
"And now we've got the machines, there's one iPad for all 11 students in the school."
And as for the kids, Miss Dalgliesh said they were itching to get at them.
"The students have some very big plans for them," she said.
"They are very interested in doing some movie making and they can't wait to get started using them."
And as each student aged five to 12 hurriedly scrolled through the multitude of "selfies" that marked their first use of the iPads, it was clear movies would be just the tip of the iceberg.
