GPPSD welcomes another partnership with Kids, Cops and Computers Program

February 08, 2018

#GPPSDThanks Kids, Cops & Computers!

Thirteen lucky students from Alexander Forbes The Academy School were given the chance to learn about technology while taking home a nifty prized possession on February 1, 2018.

“Kids today are digital learners. They’re born with digital media,” said Terry Gorgichuk, principal for Alexander Forbes School. “Social media is a huge part of their lives so this just enhances their ability to do school work, be it through the internet for research or uploading assignments to teachers using portals.”

About Kids, Cops and Computers:

Kids, Cops and Computers is a national program that is focused on providing students access to the technology they need to compete in today’s technologically dependent world. The RCMP Foundation, Grande Prairie RCMP, HP Canada and the Merry Go Round Children’s Foundation are partnering with the Grande Prairie Public School District to bring this program to Grande Prairie.
