Summary

We at St Mary' Catholic primary school are raising £1,459 to buy 13 tablets for school use. This will have an impact on children's learning in the computing curriculum and for cross curricular links. It is so important that children are exposed to this type of technology at school as the technological world around them is continuing to evolve. We need to keep up with ever changing technologies in our school so we can make sure children are safe and to ensure we are enthusing them into computing for generations to come. They are the future of technology.

" I love building programmes on Scratch at school, I wish we could do this on tablets too!" Year 4 Student

My students

The students at our school may not be exposed to technology at home as not all families can afford such expensive luxuries. We want to give them the opportunity to learn and use technology and be inspired and enthused about computing.

Well done to children of St Mary's for raising £169 on the dress up day and PTA for donating £200!

Good luck. I hope you hit your target very soon.

Fantastic idea. Hope you reach your target! Nikki

Thank you to everyone who sponsored Ede, Zeki and ilayda in their bike ride, you have helped the school get closer to their target. Come on other people, please get donating, these tablets will support so much learning, for so many children!

I hope you get the rest of the funding you want. My older brother went to St Mary's years ago and one of our youngest family members is a student there now, so we have a bit of a connection to the school :)

Good luck Vicky & school x
