Sadly, the Vodafone Warriors didn’t win the Auckland Nines, but they showed plenty of flair suggesting they will be a force in the NRL this season. That flair was shown when they helped us deliver something special to a small decile one school in South Auckland on Monday this week.

The Vodafone Warriors accompanied our presentation of 40 Samsung Galaxy tablets to Wymondley Primary School. dtr 
had previously supplied the tablets to the Vodafone Warriors for the 2013 season with the intention of passing them on to the small school at season end. Most students who attend are not in a position to afford tablets so using them in a supervised classroom environment is an excellent opportunity for them to experience technology and advancements.
The kids were ecstatic about receiving the tablets, and put on a wonderful presentation to show dtr their gratitude. As always we were humbled and astounded at the passion and enthusiasm these kids show. We are still sharing the lolly lei’s about the office! We were fortunate to have 16 members of the squad join us and they spent the afternoon going through rugby league drills and other activities with the kids. Counties Manukau Sport provided coaches and sporting equipment with stations for the kids to move through. Each station had a pair of Vodafone Warriors to assist and a Counties Manukau representative. There was also a signing table for the kids to get favourite items or dtr blow up rugby balls signed.
Pelu Leaupepetele, the school principal says “the community and the kids are still on a high from the special event. The kids love the fact that each tablet case has a Vodafone Warriors name written on it. We look forward to integrating the technological advancements the tablets bring to our curriculum. It equates to around four years of our school’s normal ICT budget.”
It was an incredible day and we’d like to thank everyone involved who helped make the day such a huge success. Let’s hope the Vodafone Warriors have continued success for the season!
