Out of more than 600 applications 12 elementary schools in Canada have been awarded grants of up to $10,000 each from Best Buy and Ecole Opasquia School is one of them.
The funding is for tech based curriculums through Best Buys school tech grant program that will give students access to the latest in computer and digital technology.
The goal of the program is to increase the exposure that students have to technology so they can develop 21st century skills.
School Principal Cam Nagle says they are very happy to receive this grant as it will help students to stay up to date with modern technology.
The School plans to buy new tablets and chrome books for the students to use.
