Snowy Hydro Laptop Donation

Tumut Academy in New South Wales recently received a generous donation of laptops from Clontarf partner Snowy Hydro.

34 Google Chromebooks were delivered to the academy by Peter Symons from the Tumut 3 Station in Talbingo.

Tumut Academy Director Mat Chapman said the laptops would be a significant boon to students who didn’t have sufficient access to online education.

“The availability of technology had been proving to be a hurdle for a number of our academy members,” he said.

“Some had zero access to a suitable device, and some had only one device per household that may have been shared by multiple siblings. This donation by Snowy Hydro is a real game changer for some of our boys, especially during the current COVID-19 situation.”

Clontarf boys can now access the laptops during designated study days in the academy or they can take them home to continue their studies from there.

Mat said that the academy staff and members were blown away when they received a phone call from Guy Boardman at Snowy Hydro asking if the devices would be of assistance to the academy’s boys.

“Snowy Hydro has such a great relationship with our boys. They send staff regularly to train with us and are always asking of ways to help the programme.”

Thank you to Peter, Guy and the whole team at Snowy Hydro!
