To: Kookaburra Educational Resources
Dear Terry
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for sponsoring our 2016 Create: Art Carnival. This event would not have been the success it was without your commitment and generosity. As a result of your help and support we are delighted that money raised and donations received will go towards our Literacy and Arts programs over the next 2 years.

Gresford Public School appreciates companies like yours that contribute towards our school community. Thanks to you, our children were inspired by our creative workshop leaders and were sent home with wonderful memories and pieces of art to treasure.

Kind Regards, Nicole Carter & Hazel Craig

"Alistair from Kookaburra has been outstanding with his pre and post purchase of the CommBox Touchscreen Panels. Any query was never a problem and he always promptly replied when emailed. Alistair ensured that all steps in the process were followed up by himself – from delivery to installation to post-installation. His detailed knowledge of the product was very reassuring and ensured we were purchasing a product which would absolutely meet our needs. If he wasn’t sure of an answer to one of our questions – he would seek out the correct contact and find out the required information.

Alistair was personable, helpful and up-beat about his service to us at Clayfield College Junior School. We have now received 3 fabulous CommBox touchscreen panels, installed beautifully, without any hiccups along the way. Thank you Alistair and Kookaburra. It has been a pleasure doing business with you."

Tonia Lassman, Assistant Head of Junior School - Learning
Clayfield College, Clayfield


"The CommBox Touchscreens our school purchased from Kookaburra Educational Resources are fantastic! They have taken interactive teaching to a higher level. Our teachers, students and administration staff are all so happy with our new purchase.

I would personally like to thank Alistair Taylor for his support both before and after our purchase of the CommBox products. It was an absolute pleasure working with him and I appreciate the time he spent on the phone, via email as well as in person going through our purchase with us. Nothing was too much trouble or too small an issue for him to address. Alistair is a great ambassador for Kookaburra Educational Resources."

Karalee State School, Karalee


"I’m loving teaching directly from the online syllabus using my favourite board … not a chalkboard, not an OHP, not a magnetic whiteboard, not an IWB (eg. SmartBoard), but a touchscreen TV on wheels from CommBox. It comes with Chalk Box FREE software so that I can annotate and draw all over the syllabus images to differentiate and make the maths visible!

Thank you so much to Jono from Kookaburra for setting up the CommBox touchscreen for my presentation last week. All the staff who I presented to were so excited to see it in action and to see how easy it was for me to install the Chalk Box software in under 5 minutes!

If you’re looking for a new interactive teaching solution, I highly recommend trialling the CommBox touchscreen. You won’t be disappointed with its extensive features and easy set up."

"I recently purchased a 75" CommBox Touchscreen from Kookaburra and had it installed in our school. I must say, the CommBox Touchscreen is such an easy and effective piece of equipment to use in the classroom. No longer do our teachers have to be tied to a "front of class" learning area, they can move the touchscreen around the whole class depending on whether they are doing small group work, carpet time or sitting at their desks. The ability to adjust the height also helps with good ergonomics and clear visibility for the whole class."

Jason Harrison, ICT Systems Support Officer
Holy Spirit School, Cranbrook


"I would like to thank Kookaburra for the easy ordering and swift delivery of school supplies. As a parent, the task of tracking down school supplies is tedious and time consuming. Every year I have to treck the shops looking for school items and it leaves me exhausted. This year I saved so much time, petrol and stress because I ordered through Kookaburra’s website. It was just so simple!

Our orders arrived quickly, delivered straight to our door and everything was there as expected.Thank you Kookaburra for the ease of ordering school supplies. Your service is a great time saver for busy parents!"

Angela Stanton, Parent


"I have been dealing with Kookaburra for many years now and have always been extremely satisfied with the service that our school receives.

Our school was due for various projector upgrades and the Hitachi Project Green Cash-Back Program offered an extra incentive at the perfect time for us. We have so far recycled 7 old projectors and purchased 7 new ones through Kookaburra and the Hitachi Green Cash-Back Program. It was a great feeling to not be committing the projectors to landfill and an added bonus to receive a cheque in the mail!"

Stephen Creenaune, Deputy Principal
Wollongong High School of the Performing Arts, Wollongong


"Our college has 13 CommBox Touchscreens which were all ordered through Kookaburra. We found Kookaburra very customer focused. They organised delivery and assembled the mobile trolleys for us. We have found the CommBoxes to be very reliable and the teachers adapt to using them very quickly. The CommBox delivers a very clear and sharp picture and they are a big improvement on the data projector. Our experience with Kookaburra and with CommBox products has been very rewarding."

Paul Cosgriff, Principal
Southern Cross Catholic College, Annandale


"Kookaburra have been printing our Personalised School Display Folders for many years now. At Biddabah Public School we use these folders for anything from Kindergarten reports through to Year 6 student profiles. We have always enjoyed a fanstastic working relationship with Kookaburra and the ease of ordering and delivery of these folders is remarkable. The artwork and display folders are always delivered to a very high standard and with a minimum of fuss.

I whole heartedly recommend Kookaburra to supply you with the highest quality folders, printed with expediency and the impeccable service that they continue to offer all their customers."

Sandy Cox, School Administrative Manager
Biddabah Public School, Biddabah


2011 is "the 4th year that Kookaburra have printed our display folders for both Ongoing and 'Year Level Portfolios'. Initially, after discussing options, a sample selection of artwork was provided for us by Kookaburra to choose the styles that best suited our needs. Our request included extra inserts to accommodate samples of student work for each of the Key Learning Areas. I am happy to say that both the artwork and the folders were of such great quality that we have continued to use Kookaburra to supply our folders. Their service has been wonderful, with delivery of the Student Portfolios on time to include in Book Packs, as well as separate delivery of the 'Ongoing Portfolios' to the school address.

Besides quality of product and timely delivery, courtesy, condiseration and a preparedness to meet our school needs have been the hallmarks of the service provided by Kookaburra and their staff. I heartily recommend both their service and quality of product."

Judith Mellifont, Assistant Principal Religious Education
Stella Maris Catholic School, Maroochydore


"Congratulations Kookaburra! Your back to school ordering process and supply of products has been wonderful. I have just received our BTS order and it was pleasing to have the right quantities of everything that was ordered and the right products. Your catalogue was so easy to use to locate products and your prices were cheaper in comparison to some other companies.

Thank you for a smooth back to school process. We would highly recommend your services to any school looking for a simple, easy and cost effective partner for their back to school needs. We will definitely be using your services again."

Ann Maxwell, School Admin Manager
Ladysmith Public School, Ladysmith


"Kookaburra is professional and efficient and their Student Packs are hassle-free. They are a one-stop shop for all our student book and stationery needs. Having a Pack means there is consistency for the teacher with all students having the same items.

The Packs are really convenient for parents. They are able to order online in their own time with their child. They can also deal directly with Kookaburra, which means they have control of their order. All the queries are dealt with for us.

By using the online portal we are also able to significantly cut down our use of paper, making us more environmentally-friendly and efficient.

It is just so easy to work with Kookaburra!"

Jenny Worthy, Principals Assistant
Coffs Harbour Christian Community School Years 6-12, Coffs Harbour


"Student Packs take the pressure off everyone – staff, parents and students. They are tremendously helpful in taking the chaos out of back-to-school. The whole process is easy, all the administration and distribution is looked after for us.

Kookaburra’s pricing is so competitive and the products are great quality. We are always quoted the best price and it’s a great advantage that the parents are able to access the discounted education pricing.

The Kookaburra team are very competent and professional. Nothing is too hard. Any questions are dealt with quickly and they are always able to find a solution for us.

Kookaburra really understands our local market. We always receive a really high level of service and they make us feel extremely important as a very valued customer."

Jill O’Dell, Assistant Bursar
Coffs Harbour Christian Community School Years 6-12, Coffs Harbour


"Kookaburra provides St Josephs with a customised, compulsory stationery pack for our primary students. We have found that by using a standardised pack, we are able to ensure that all students have access to the same equipment in the classroom. This is a great advantage for our teachers as the students are working with the exact items they have requested.

All the items that are provided in the Kookaburra Student Packs are of a very high quality and are reasonably priced. This saves our parents shopping around, as all the items are selected for them and outlined in the Pack.

The Student Pack process is really easy. Our orders are filled quickly and Packs are returned punctually to the school in time for our orientation. They really do simplify the whole process."

Helen Hart, Kinder Teacher
St Josephs Primary School, Kempsey


"Kookaburra’s Student Pack service works exceptionally well for St Columba. We find the whole process to be flexible and easily customised to our needs. Providing the packs online for our parents to purchase saves them time and means there is one less thing they have to worry about. The packs provide a complete solution and contain exactly what our students need. With delivery to the student’s home, Student Packs will relieve the school administration of time consuming collation and distribution. The whole process is streamlined.

We have found Kookaburra’s pricing to be extremely competitive and the packs are a cost effective option for our students and their parents.

The Kookaburra customer service team are efficient and helpful, with a can-do attitude."
