More than 20 schools around Dubbo and the Orana region will receive a digital upgrade thanks to a state government initiative.
Trangie Central School is one of the 29 schools in the area who will receive upgrades to their technology thanks to the $365.8 million Rural Access Gap program which will impact over 1000 rural and remote schools around the state.
The schools principal Gary Hansen knows the program will be extremely beneficial.
"It's been very good for our school," he said.
"It's really locked in to what we are doing and where we want to go with our technology.
"Not just upskill teachers in using technology in everyday practice but it's also lifts what opportunities we have for our kids.
"We've tagged into what's called the Microsoft translation program and we've decided to us the Microsoft platform all across our school with both the administration and with student learning platforms."'
Mr Hansen knows there has been a push for more technology to be used in schools and Trangie has been more than willing to move towards the future.
"Over the last few years there has been a lot of push with technology," the principal said.
"We've been very lucky that we have had people in the school who have had that technology focus and the drive.
"But this has really allowed us to fast gear it and at the same time and the right time so under the RAG program.
"We have got a technology officer who is a teacher who works with both our primary and secondary teachers to support them and also to make sure things are happening around the school."
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders is pleased the schools around the region like Trangie Central School will have access to the the new technology.
"Under the Rural Access Gap program, more than 680 new devices were delivered to students across the region and 540 new laptops were given to teachers," he said.
'Not only did our schools receive hardware, they were also resourced with mentoring, advice and guidance from a dedicated Digital Learning Adviser.
"I'm so excited to see that 545 classrooms in Dubbo now have learning spaces with modern learning displays, giving students access to online learning and other digital opportunities in the most transformational way."
