CBE celebration marks distribution of 150,000 refurbished computers to schools

Viscount Bennett Centre recently hosted a celebratory event marking the distribution of 150,000 refurbished computers by Alberta Computers for Schools (CFS).  The Calgary Board of Education was also presented with a certificate of recognition for its important partnership with Alberta CFS at the celebration.

The event also marked the grand opening of the Calgary Shop for CFS at Viscount Bennett Centre. Guests were welcomed by John Fisher, principal of Chinook Learning Services and taken on a tour of the new facility, which is now the hub of Alberta CFS’s Calgary operations.

Every year, Alberta CFS refurbishes and delivers 13,000 to 14,000 computers to schools, libraries and non-profit learning organizations across the province, including many CBE schools.

The Calgary Board of Education is grateful for the hard work, dedication and effort by all who have made and continue to make this project a success. Initiatives such as this help our Board provide education as unique as every student.
