Blackville School was recently selected as one of twelve schools across Canada to receive funds in the 2013 Future Generation Tech Lab program.
Sponsored by Future Shop, Blackville School received $15,000 which will allow the school to purchase more equipment that can be used for podcasting, video production, online publishing, photography, interviewing and writing.
The equipment will be used mainly for Journalism 120 and Media Studies 120, but will also be available for students to use in other courses when the technology is required to complete assignments.
The equipment that will be purchased includes updated computers, software and digital cameras.
On Monday, March 11, representatives from Future Shop along with Anglophone North District Superintendent Nancy Boucher were present at the school for the cheque presentation ceremony.
