  1. What training did you do today?

    Good for you. If she's a triathlete, she'll take all your training time, and if she's not, she'll complain about how much you train!
  2. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    Yeah. They just miss out and have to share.
  3. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    And it's only $38! Bargain! I wonder what her teacher will say. Lol!!
  4. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    Yeah. She's in a state school. It's either $200/yr to hire a school one or BYOd from yr 4 onwards
  5. What training did you do today?

    What's he got to do with your training? I did 140. OMG! I wish they never invented bulk heads! Gold Coast Aquatic Centre, 2 x 50m pools and only half of one of them was open .... what the? ? Oh, and, day off today, so 9.5 hrs sleep
  6. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    Actually, I take that back. .. $550.... she's likely to leave it behind one day in the sports hall or somewhere!
  7. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    Thanks. I was under the impression that they came apart from the keyboard. ???
  8. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    He wants to race for the good country
  9. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    Not too worried about office. I'm pretty sure the school put that on for us. 2 in 1 - She's not real gentle. Rushes everything. I'm concerned that she's going to try and pull it apart or put it back together too quickly and bugger it. Maybe i need to look at one IRL Yeah, ideally 11" Not too concerned about price so long as it's value for money.
  10. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    Ok. Happy to admit, I have no clue. First of all, is 'drive' the same as 'ram'? Any of these do? https://www.jbhifi.com.au/computers-tablets/laptops/hp/hp-stream-11-y009tu-11-6-laptop-with-office-365-1yr-subscription/330176/ https://www.jbhifi.com.au/computers-tablets/laptops/lenovo/lenovo-ideapad-120s-14-laptop/503707/ Thinking I'll avoid the 2 in 1. I thought it might break easier? ?
  11. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    That's OK. We don't know who you really are anyway.
  12. Laptop needed for 8 year old at school

    I think a laptop trolly (which we used to have years ago) to share between 4-6 classes would do. Then you could still teach them IT stuff without the expense. You just booked when you wanted to use them. It would suit my class. Was a bit of a pain moving the truly between rooms but wasn't expensive for the parents!
  13. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Ditto Depends if you do really really well and there are not more than 25 people that get more points combined than what you earn in that race. .... I think.

    Each class is different. Some use them lots, mine not so much. Mathletics gets used as extension work for fast finishers, typing tutor is used as a fast finisher, excel is used for graphing in maths, word is used for assignments (with spell and grammar check turned off), powerpoint is used for projects, Google is used for bits and pieces, an online learning site is used to access lessons that have been taught if needed when absent or for revision, Word is used when taking notes as optional to writing SOMETIMES. They still have a handwriting lesson everyday. Spelling tests are done with paper and pencil as is most maths. On average, in my class, they wouldn't be used for more than 1hr/day. There are some VERY lazy teachers. Sorry, but I don't fall into that category 😛
