The Make a Total Effort (MATE) rewards program is an initiative of the school rewarding high achievement and good behaviour.

Head of technology John Keyworth said the winners were given high quality hard cases for their $1400 laptops.

‘This is the first time we have run this rewards program,’ he said.

‘I’m almost sure no other school in the state has a similar initiative, nor have they invested such a large amount of funds in this way.’

In 2011, every years 10, 11 and 12 student at the school received a laptop as part of a Federal Government program.

The Macbook Pro is a newer, updated model.

Students will be allowed to use the Macbook Pros until the end of the year when the selection process begins again in 2014.
