What you'll get to enjoy...
All of the iPads available for loan are brand new. You will be equipped with an iPad 9th Generation (WiFi + Cellular). They even come with a case that protects the device for you. While we expect that you will care for the device as best as you are able; you are not liable for any damage.
Each iPad is equipped with free data meaning you can access the Internet, download apps, and contact your family and friends even if you don’t have the Internet at home. You won’t even have to search for free Wi-Fi when you’re out and about which is better for security.
We’ll be running Click and Connect events throughout Penrith. You can also organise your own session with a group of friends. To find out what events are coming up or to book your own please call us on (02) 9090 4141.
At events you will get to meet DLF and Penrith City Council staff. You will also get a chance to meet some of our amazing volunteer Tech Mates. If you need to follow up with anyone please contact us on (02) 9090 4141.
