Bringing young people in a low decile school up-to-speed with the latest technology sounds like an expensive process but Tamaki College proves it doesn't have to be.

Students do lessons on their own netbooks and classrooms have become virtually paperless.

"It surprises people because we're a low decile school. They expect it to be a hand-out but it's not," deputy principal Russel Dunn says.

The school is part of the Manaiakalani Education Trust, which includes seven schools in the Tamaki area (East & Bays Courier, April 29, 2011). Parents lease-to-own the netbooks, paying them off at a rate that suits them. After a $40 deposit they pay around $15 a month, which includes wireless internet access at the school.
