Our Lady of Fatima School is showing off its new classroom technology.

The Catholic school in Lafayette hosted its Cyber Sip and See event tonight for parents and alumni to see the hands-on equipment that students and teachers use on a daily basis.

Among the gear showcased by students and teachers were iPads, computerized whiteboards and robotics equipment.

School leaders say donations from Fatima alumni helped pay for that gear.

“We wanted to show our faculty, our parents, our grandparents, and any of our alumni what their money is going to. So when you’re donating to our technology department, we want everybody to come into our classrooms and see where the money, if they’re donating, is going to the new boards and the new iPads. We want everybody to realize this is where the money is going, and it’s worth it,” said Beth Resweber, Blue and Gold chairman and member of the OLF Foundation.
