Families on the Coast are being encouraged to take advantage of free software bundles being made available to government school students in NSW.
As a Department of Education initiative, all public school students are able to download Microsoft Office Professional Plus and Adobe Creative Cloud for free during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Together the two software bundles cover all the basics that students need to support their learning from home using Word, PowerPoint and Acrobat, as well as additional programs like Excel and Photoshop.
The bundles are expensive so families are urged to get a hold of them while they’re free.
To download and install the software, students need to visit the Department’s Academic Software Download Centre on its website and will need to link their student email to verify that they’re a public school student.
