Headphones for classes

Thanks to our wonderful PTA for the recent purchase of headphones for each class. 
These headphones are can be used with the desktop computers and with class ipads. 
With each set there is also a splitter so up to 5 headphones can be plugged into an ipad 
during group learning.
Thanks Tauriko School PTA!
