CBH's IT team donate laptops to regional schools

Members from CBH’s IT team travelled across grain growing WA last month to deliver 150 Dell laptops to six regional schools. 

Geraldton Primary School (PS), Kondinin PS, Corrigin District High School (DHS), Quairading DHS, Beverley DHS and Pingelly PS all received laptops, with many going to kit out the library or to go on trolleys for classroom use.

Erin McPartland, Jacob Alaga, Jobe Predo and Head of IT, Tina King formed the team that made the deliveries. 

“It was a great opportunity to travel to the regions and donate the laptops to boost the schools educational resources,” Tina said. 

“The students and staff were extremely grateful and excited to receive the laptops, with one student stating they have never had a laptop to use before”.

As one of the seven co-operative principles, concern for community is engrained in our DNA. This donation allowed us to continue to exercise that principle and give back to regional communities. 

This donation formed part of the CBH IT Laptop Refresh that began in May 2023. IT swapped all existing Dell laptops to Lenovo laptops for all laptop-using employees. This decision was prompted by the need to stay up to date with technology, efficiency and reliability as the team manages harvests. 

The remaining suitable laptops that were not donated will be used for CBH employees to loan and for overseas travel.
