Neoprene Sleeves distributed Friday 3rd February

On Friday 3rd of February nearly 100 students received neoprene sleeves they had ordered online from CompNow after a delay in supply. However, it has been noted by CompNow that in fact these sleeves are slightly smaller than required to fit the iPad comfortably. CompNow have acknowledged the problem with the sleeve and have pursued this with their supplier. CompNow have agreed to replace the incorrect neoprene sleeves and are currently organising replacement sleeves. As soon as I have more information on the replacement sleeves I will notify those students affected.

Replacement iPad Covers and Neoprene Sleeves

It has come to my notice that the iPad cover or neoprene sleeve of some students in Year 8 and 9 are in a state of disrepair and in need of replacement. Together, the iPad cover and neoprene sleeve in good condition provide a high level of protection that can protect the iPad from accidental damage. However, when either or both become worn and torn, the level of protection is dramatically diminished. I encourage all students to have iPad covers and neoprene sleeves that are in good condition and provide a high level of protection. Replacement iPad covers and neoprene sleeves can be purchased from the College Shop.
