The ACS Queensland Branch, the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Foundation (QATSIF), Substation33, P&C Queensland and Litehaus International are collaborating on the “See IT Be IT” campaign providing quality second hand laptop devices to first nations children around the State. Peter Yeates ACS Qld Secretary and ICT Systems Manager at Padua College, Kedron has organised the first donation of quality used laptops for the “See IT Be IT” campaign, connecting first nations students around Queensland with laptop devices. Groundprobe and Datacom are other ACS members who have made substantial donations.

So far, 519 donations and devices have been distributed to children and families in need throughout Queensland.

A huge thank you to Geoff Augutis, from Queensland Computers ACS member and Bundaberg Chapter Chair from for donating chargers so that we could get another 70 devices out and for arranging another 35 devices from St Luke’s Anglican College, Bundaberg which will go out to students in that region next term.

Also, a big shout out to the P&Cs Qld team who are getting 44 tablets out to flood affected students and families.

Next term, LiteHaus International is doing a South West Qld run with another 200 devices.  P&Cs Qld and QATSIF will help with arranging the school connections.
