COMPUTER Bus was guest of the United Nations Association - Isle of Man, Saturday November 14th, at the Post Graduate Medical Centre, Douglas.

The mobile computer classroom was acting as the Press Office for a gathering of students from seven schools and colleges on the Isle of Man gathered to discuss crucial issues affecting world order.

The product at the end of the day, was a two-page newspaper covering the event, “The United Nation”.
The students, as delegates to a mock United Nations General Assembly, represented the views of 16 different countries on such questions as the possible establishment of an International Criminal Court to try crimes against humanity.

STUDENTS form Castle Rushen High School, St.Ninian’s High School, Queen Elizabeth II High School, Ballakermeen High School, Ballacottier Primary School and Fairfield Junior School, all aboard the Manx Telecomputer Bus outside the STAKIS Hotel on Friday February 5th.

Together they demonstrated their skills on the computers to the specially invited guests prior to the keynote speeches by Professors Nigel Paine and Stephen Heppell (BELOW).




IN July, the Computer Bus was invited to the Mount Murray Hotel, Santon, as part of a conference staged by Communicator Insurance, and featuring many guests from British Telecom. Delegates took a keen interest in the Computer Bus and its activities. The bus still looked splendid following its make-over received in connection with the trip to Earls Court. It is seen posed outside the Mount Murray in the glorious Manx sunshine.

On a rather wetter, windier day last October, another set of delegates, this time international telecommunications students from Bailbrook College (right), on the Island as guests of ManxTelecom, visited the bus during its visit
to Kewaigue School.
