Digital welcome greets visitors to Karori school

Jul 31st, 2008 | By | Category: News

VISITORS to Karori Normal School are now greeted by a digital slide show, thanks to fundraising efforts from the Parent Teacher Association.

The 32-inch plasma flat-screen is mounted in the school’s entrance foyer and displays an entertaining collection of digital images of children at work and play.

This new innovation is thanks to generous donations to the school’s PTA who raised funds to buy a digital camera for every class as well as the foyer’s screen.

Principal Diane Leggett says the children have embraced the innovative project and love seeing themselves on the screen.  “The children interviewed staff and each other around ‘what we are most proud of'”

Students not only star in the photos, they also take the pictures, edit and produce the slide shows and debate events worthy of coverage.

The digital diary has covered recent school events such as wacky hair day, cross country running, folk dancing and book week.

The high-tech entrance seems to have won over the students, especially 11-year-old Nick Desi who said “I reckon it’s really cool!”
