Newfoundland’s Computers for Schools Program

Recycling computers in Newfoundland for the benefit of schools is what Newfoundland’s Computers for Schools is all about.

Founded in 1993 by Industry Canada and the Telecom Pioneers, Computers for Schools accepts computers from businesses and government organizations, refurbishes the computers and related computer equipment to distribute to schools, libraries and non-profit organizations.

In Newfoundland, Computers for Schools have three points of distribution – Corner Brook, Gander and St. John’s.  Newfoundland’s Computers for Schools has shown major successes since its inception, distributing approximately 34,000 computers to Newfoundland and Labrador schools.

Within Newfoundland and Labrador, the Aliant Pioneers players a major role in the Computers for Schools Program.

More than ever, Newfoundland and Labrador teachers depend on computers to help deliver and enrich their curriculum.  Students throughout Newfoundland and Labrador depend on computers as one of the fundamental learning resources.

With technology changing at a rapid pace, many schools are faced with tough decisions of providing basic school needs or to update technology in the classroom.  Unfortunately, many times the decisions made deny computer access to many students.

This is why Newfoundland’s Computers for Schools program is an essentional community service.
