Newport pupils impress County Councillors!

Four pupils from Newport Junior School joined many important people involved in providing IT services in Hampshire to demonstrate to the Hampshire County Councillors how IT is used to improve efficiency within the County. Our pupils demonstrated how they enjoy learning using our Virtual learning Platform - Wizkid and answered all the Councillors' questions about how we use IT to teach and learn in Hampshire. Everyone was really impressed with how confident our pupils were and we are extremely proud of them!

The highlight of their day was a tour around the 'data centre' at The Castle in Winchester which is where all the information from all the schools and other council services is stored. We all enjoyed walking along the special air-conditioned floor and were even shown a top secret room. We could tell you what was in it but... we are sworn to secrecy!
