I Awards, Looks Like An App

Recently a team of Year 9 students and two teachers from the Murray Bridge High School attended the Australian Information Industry Association National iAwards in Melbourne, where their technology app “Emergency Kid”, attracted a Merit Award in a highly contested competition.
Students, Thomas Tidy, Riley Lienert, Jalal Jammoul and Logan Baker, and teachers Lochlann Dwyer and Tiahne Wareing, were able to take part in this prestigious event through the sponsorship of local Rotary Clubs of Murray Bridge and Mobilong, of the Rural City of Murray Bridge, a local business Murray Computers, and Education Chief Executive Rick Persse.
This great outcome for the local community was achieved through the combined and eager support of local organisations working together.
A group of people posing for the cameraDescription automatically generatedMy interpretation of this app is derived from the entry statement made by the students.
The core idea is that the app on a phone or other electronic device, is a source of information to help young children deal with a medical emergency that has occurred, and also providing a quick link with emergency services. When fully developed, this app will be available for release on Android and Apple iOS platforms.
Senator Marielle Smith congratulates the students. Story; Sam Cozens, photos supplied by MBHS.
