Rotary Club of White Rock Peninsula donates cameras, Kindles

Students at South Surrey/White Rock Learning Centre now have access to two SLR cameras and two Kindle e-readers thanks to the Rotary Club of White Rock Peninsula.

The club used a $2,600 grant from its district to purchase the equipment for the 2350 King George Blvd. centre, which specializes in teaching at-risk youth.

“With it’s new stock of cameras and e-readers, the learning centre’s nearly 200 youth will now have the opportunity to improve their communication skills by understanding how to use digital media for advanced learning, problem solving and the critical analysis of information,” a release states.
