It took some real teamwork, but a local school now has some extra money to spend on technology, thanks to the London Drugs staff.
Connie Warren, assistant manager of the computer centre in the Penticton London Drugs, said the staff decide to enter a contest sponsored by CPU manufacturer Intel.
Warren said staff participated in a series of quizzes to test their knowledge, and racked up some high scores, enough to earn them a $10,000 prize. “We decided to give it to Columbia Elementary,” said Warren.
“Seeing as it came from Intel, we’re looking at putting in some technology in the school,” said principal Lloyd Lindsay. “Some smart boards, projectors, things that, we’ve been in need of for a long time and couldn’t afford.
“This came along at just the right time.”
