iPad Damages
Over the last few weeks, three iPad Mini’s have been seriously damaged.  The screens have either been smashed or cracked.  It is quite clear that these iPads have been out of their full body protective cases even though students were told to never to take them out.

It costs the school £75 to fix an iPad.  This is money that the school doesn’t have.  Students are reminded that it is very important that their iPads are kept in the case at all times.  If more iPads become damaged, it could be that we have to take all the iPads in and stop the iPad project altogether.
