Jessica Mauboy has made a visit to Yipirinya School in Alice Springs to distribute 40 Tablets and an iQ 30 Cart, which have been donated by Telstra, Samsung and PC Locs for the students.
Driven by Jess, who is passionate about improving the educational opportunities of the children at the school where she is an Ambassador, Telstra and Samsung kindly offered up the 40 tablets along with the donation of a charging and syncing cart from PC Locs.
Jess explained, “I am so thrilled that Telstra, Samsung and PC Locs have offered these tablets and accessories to the students of the Yipirinya School. These tools will go a long way in assisting with the education of all the students at the school. It is so important that they have the same opportunities and access to technology despite their remote location and continue following their dreams.”
Yipirinya’s Principal, Ken Langford-Smith said, “The part played by our Ambassador Jessica Mauboy in obtaining these donations demonstrates how much she really cares for our students. We are immensely grateful to her, and to Telstra, Samsung and PC Locs for their generosity.”

PC Locs helping Como Primary School manage their iPad devices with the Carrier 40 Cart™ and iQ 30 Cart™.
Mobile devices, such as the iPad and others, continue to grow and be used as learning and teaching tools in Primary Schools. Como Primary School has implemented iPad and iPad mini into their learning program with over 90 devices for students to share.
Penny Herne, Vice Principal at Como Primary School, said that the teacher would book hour block sessions during the day for students to use the iPad devices.
Ms Herne: “We store all of our devices in PC Locs products. The iQ 30 Cart manages our syncing and charging whilst the Carrier 40 Cart’s secure and charge them”.
Como Primary School rotate their devices through the 2 type of Carts they have available to them. The Carrier 40 Cart and the iQ 30 Cart share the same basket so interchanging them between the two products makes it easy to rotate the devices between iPad Cart’s – When the devices need to sync, they are placed in the iQ 30 Cart, and if they only need charging, the Carrier 40 Cart is used.
Ms Herne went on to say, “The Carrier 40 Cart has been fantastic… It has a different opening mechanism which is really easy to use. It’s a simple matter of grabbing the baskets, taking them to the classroom and handing them [the iPad devices] out.
Rachel Martino, a teacher at Como Primary School, said that she enjoys teaching the students with the iPad devices and that School should be commended for implementing iPads into the curriculum.
Ms Martino said, “The Carrier 40 Cart makes it so much easier for us to access the iPads… the kids love using them because they make learning so much more engaging… and with the baskets, we can hand them out to the kids really easily”.
