Melville Intermediate - Managed Learning Network Announcement from Hekia Parata

The Minister of Education Hekia Parata came to visit our school today after lunch and she talked about a new managed network learning programme for all schools.  As part of the announcement she said that there would be:
  • Uncapped data for all schools
  • Shared portal for apps
  • shared teaching and learning with other schools across New Zealand
  • $700 million dollar managed network
We welcomed her with a Whakatau, and we recorded her welcome and also her speech.  We then edited her speech to include the announcement about the new network and posted it on our class page.  The video below is her annoucement - filmed this afternoon at Melville Intermediate on Friday 2nd August by Nathan H and Manish from Melville Intermediate School.  Edited by Josh and Manish from Room Five.
