App Haul by LEAF Academy

Friends of LEAF Club was established by Y3 classmates, aiming to provide a more friendly and loving environment for the LEAF community, especially during the online period, by arranging different activities for the whole school to participate. So far we have successfully held the Valentines Speed date, the Grand Book Swap, and we are excited to share with you our latest project, the App Haul.

We asked our students and staffulty members (teachers and employees of LEAF Academy) to share with us apps they find useful or worth-having, while others might not know. After a week of active contribution and evaluation, we ended up with 20 amazing apps to share.
We encouraged people to share these findings with their families, friends, and loved ones, therefore it’s our pleasure to present our collective contribution to you guys! We hope you will have some interesting findings 😉
