School Network Upgrade Project comes to an end

Within the next few months, all New Zealand state and state-integrated schools will have the ability to access high quality, high-speed internet.

With the final few schools set to have their information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure upgraded, the School Network Upgrade Project (SNUP) is coming to an end.

The 11 year project has seen 2,431 New Zealand schools given the infrastructure to access fast and reliable internet.

From city centres to rural towns throughout the country, schools are harnessing the power of 21st century technology to improve learning.

Several schools throughout the country are embracing this new technology:

  • Collingwood Area School – using it’s ultrafast broadband for everything from video conferencing and accessing courses from other providers to collaborative teaching in their new flexible learning spaces.
  • Churton School – using broadband to keep track of students progress as well as answering students questions online at any time. Students enjoy using the online tools and resources especially the 100 Word Challenge blog.
