Ten students in the Sudbury and Algoma Districts can now access home-based learning thanks to a laptop donation from Hydro One. The company distributed 100 laptops to interested school boards through the Ministry of Education. One of the recipients is the Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon, a school board that still needed computers for e-learning.  

“The Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon greatly appreciates Hydro One’s donation of laptop computers, which will contribute to the board’s efforts in supporting our students in their home-based learning,” said Paul Henry, director of education, Conseil scolaire catholique Nouvelon. “This donation will make a significant difference for the families of Northern Ontario students who otherwise did not have readily access to the required learning tools to pursue their learning.”  

“During this unprecedented time, Hydro One is finding new ways to energize life in the communities where we live and work. We are proud to partner with schools and the province to provide students the technology they need to keep learning and stay connected,” said Jay Armitage, Vice President, Marketing and Communications, Hydro One.   

The laptops are being distributed just in time for students to finish up the school year online.
