e-Learning – eAko

Marlborough Primary School is just beginning on it’s very exciting e-Learning journey.  ​All classrooms are fitted with an interactive Smart Board to enhance and extend pupils learning.

Year 0,1,2 and 3 will have in class devices available for use. They will also have access to Whānau block chromebooks, so they do not need to purchase any devices.

Year 4,5,6 will have access to chromebooks in class on a 1 between 2 ratio, so if parents want to purchase a device, feel free to do so.

Please contact the office or your classroom teacher for further clarification.
