Kingscliff puts Sea Spray on CD
KINGSCLIFF High School has gone high-tech with its annual school magazine now on CD, putting the school at the forefront of technology.
This year the school's deputy principal Ken Allison decided that producing the school magazine on paper was detrimental to the environment and that costs could be greatly reduced.
Mr Allison, who lead the technological charge, had been thinking about the change for eight years, and this year, with the help of teacher John Simons and a team of students who photographed and filmed school events, he was able to turn his idea into a reality.
The CD, which sells for $2 as opposed to the $8 for the magazine, has been produced without advertisers or sponsors and has already outsold the previous years' magazines.
"However, we wouldn't mind getting a few sponsors on board," he said.
Called Sea Spray, the CD has all the articles and photos but also includes video with audio of school sporting events.
