Trillian Variety Bash Brings High Tech And Transport to Schools

A Sunshine Coach, Canon printers, Apple iPads and Pavilion Netbooks donated to small-town schools

Day two of the Variety Trillian Bash took the convoy of quirky and classic cars from Waitomo to Rotorua via a series of small-town schools, and met the pupils of a New Plymouth Community School to deliver a Ford Transit Sunshine Coach.

First up, Waitomo School’s 44 pupils supplied breakfast, while the Argus Fire crew dispensed coffee from a macine wired into their appliance, before Bashers presented two Canon-donated printers.

Three more printers were delivered to Centennial Park School, before the Bashers pulled into the Warehose, Te Kuiti.

The Warehouse is a staunch supporter of Kiwi kids through Variety – The Childrens Charity, and Variety CEO Lorraine Taylor and Paul Walsh of The Warehouse were on hand to present Te Wharekura o Maniapoto with five iPads and five HP Pavilion Netbooks as part of Variety’s Laptops for Learning programme.

More printers were presented to Piopio, and Aria Schools before lunch – along with magic shows from Super Hubert and plenty of give-aways from the likes of Pop n Good and Ford.

Pupils from New Plymouth’s Marfell Community School in New Plymouth visited Benneydale school to collect the keys to a Sunshine Coach they will use to take pupils to sports and cultural fixtures away from home, before before the convoy headed out to make afternoon donations of printers and laptops to Mangakino School, and printers to Whakamaru School.

Today the Bash travels from Rotorua to Waikaremoana via Kaiangaroa and Murupara.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
