Whakaaro Hou Education Trust Chrome Books

At Paraparaumu College we strongly recommend that students bring their own device to support their learning.  While we do not require a specific device, we have found that a device with excellent battery life, keyboard and screen and small enough to be carried, works best.

We are delighted to be collaborating with other schools in the Kāpiti area through the Whakaaro Hou Trust which offers the opportunity for families to purchase a Google Chrome Book including insurance, warranty and carrier bag for a very reasonable price.  There are options for paying off the device over either a two or three year period.

The next roll-out of Trust devices will take place on 16 February 2021.  Please complete the expression of interest by 12 February 2021 and return it to the Trust.

Due to Covid-19 only 50 devices have been sourced at present so it will be on a first come, first served basis.
