The Rotary Club of Victor Harbor has made a donation of $2000 to Victor Harbor High School for the purchase of up to four new laptop computers as a resource for young people who may not be able to purchase their own laptop for their studies.
The cheque was presented to Principal Amanda O’Shea by the Rotary Club President Mark Cox during the Meet and Greet night for parents at the school.
“The Rotary Club of Victor Harbor is pleased to be able to support young people in their journey toward an education and it is pleasing to be able to provide money raised within the local community to help the youth of our community” said President Mark Cox.
“The assistance with the purchase of computers is just part of our ongoing support for the school which also includes funding for volleyball resources, school awards and for the student who was successful in winning our Fred Heddle Scholarship award.”
The IT Leader and Assistant Principal for the Victor Harbor High School, David Bennett, acknowledged that being able to provide these extra devices to students will have a huge impact on their learning and help to break the cycle of disadvantage for young people and it is much appreciated.
The computers will be available in the Resource Centre for use by students in any grade.
